Exp Function Example

The example uses Exp to calculate the value of e.  Exp(1) is e raised to the power of 1.  To try this example, paste the code into the Declarations section of a form.  Then press F5 and click the form.


Sub Form_Click ()

   ' Exp(x) is e ^x so Exp(1) is e ^1 or e.

   Dim Msg, ValueOfE                     ' Declare variables.

   ValueOfE = Exp(1)                     ' Calculate value of e.

   Msg = "The value of e is " & ValueOfE

   MsgBox Msg                            ' Display message.

End Sub
