CDbl - function of language VBScript

Description:
Returns an expression that has been converted to type Double.
Syntax:
CDbl(expression As Variant) As Double
Calling:
n = CDbl(expression)
Parameters:
expression(Variant) Any valid expression.
Note:

The conversion functions can be used e.g. if you want some operation result to be expressed as a particular data type (rather than the default data type). For example, use CDbl or CSng to force Double or Single data type in cases where integer arithmetic normally would occur.

Use the CDbl function to provide internationally aware conversions from any other data type to a Double type. For example, different decimal separators and thousands separators are properly recognized depending on the locale setting of your system.

 
Caution: This function can convert only values with separators set locally (e.g. value 3.14 or 3,14). Therefore a problem arises when values in the text form originate on another computer with different setting. That's why it is recommended the Pm.CDbl method that solves this problem!
