CoerceToDoubleFast Function MakeDouble Function CoerceToVarType Function CoerceToDate Function CoerceToSingle FunctionvString: The string whose first 8 (eight) characters are to be interpreted as a Double value. Function returns Null if vString is Null or cannot be fixed up to a String.
Note: Function generates the Visual Basic Error "Illegal Function Call" if vString is less than 8 characters long (the size of a Double value).
Note: If vString is more than eight characters long, the leftmost eight characters are coerced to a Double value.
