    Unanswered: function in access.

    Hi all..
    I need to build a function with 2 variable

    I knwo for function with 1 varible, i can do this

    function mynumber(byval a as integer)
    msgbox(a)
    end function

    this will give me a message box for the value i enter
    like
    mynumber(5) = 5

    What I have a problem is with 2 or more variable

    for example....

    function mynumber(byval a as integer, byval b as integer)
    dim x as integer
    x = a + b
    msgbox(x)
    end function

    This one does not work

    Please tell me how to fix this ....

    Thank you all in advance

    function mynumber(a as integer, b as integer)

    Note that since you're passing integers, you techincally don't even need the byval at all.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    try this
    for example....

    From this
    function mynumber(byval a as integer, byval b as integer)
    dim x as integer
    x = a + b
    msgbox(x)
    end function


    to


    function mynumber(a as integer,b as integer)
    dim x as integer
    mynumber = a + b
    msgbox(mynumber)
    end function


    newanswer = mynumber(2,5)

    msgbox will say 7
    and the newanswer will have 7 as a value
    hope this help
