If a user passes in a text string that contains numbers, you can use cInt to change those values from a text type to a numeric type.
So let's say you have
ItemBought = "14 cats"
You could parse out the left side of that text string so that you end up with
ItemCt = "14"
but you can't actually do math calculations with that, because it is a string of characters, not an actual number. So to turn that into a number value, you would use:
ItemNum = cInt(ItemCt)
