The VBA STR function is listed under the data type conversion category of VBA functions. When you use it in VBA code, it converts a number into a string. In simple words, it can convert a number into a text which represents the number.
- Number: A number for which you want to convert into a string.
To practically understand how to use VBA STR function, you need to go through the below example where we have written a vba code by using it:
Sub example_STR() Range("B1").Value = Str(Range("A1")) End Sub
In the above code, we have used the STR to convert the numeric value in cell A1 into a string and return the result in cell B1.
- It adds a leading space every time it converts a number to a string for the sign of the number.
- If the value specified is a value other than a number or a number that can’t be recognized as a number, VBA will return the run-time 13 error.
