Make Var Type Function
Coerce Make Class

Public Function MakeVarType( _
    ByVal vValue As Variant _
    ) As String

"Make String From Value" or "Coerce Value To String"
Return the in-memory representation of any type of value in the form of a string.
Applies the appropriate Make function depending upon the type of the value vValue.

    MakeVarType(CCur(1)) = Chr$(16) + Chr$(39) + String$(6, 0)
    MakeVarType(CDbl(1)) = String$(6, 0) + Chr$(240) + Chr$(63)
    MakeVarType(CInt(1)) = Chr$(1) + Chr$(0)
    MakeVarType(CLng(1)) = Chr$(1) + String$(3, 0)
    MakeVarType(CSng(1)) = Chr$(0) + Chr$(0) + Chr$(128) + Chr$(63)
    MakeVarType(Null) = ""

vValue: The value whose in-memory representation is to be returned in the form of a string. vValue can be a numeric value, a date value, a numeric string, or a date string. Function returns an empty string if vValue is Null or Empty. Function returns vValue unchanged if it is already a string.

Note: This function converts the string representation of the value to Unicode using the default code page of the system, except in the case where the string is a Byte or String value.
v1.3 Change: Removed 16-bit support from this function.
