IsNumeric returns True in OpenOffice VB and LibreOffice when evaluating a space or dash.


The VB function of IsNumeric returns True in OpenOffice VB and LibreOffice Visual Basic when evaluating a space or dash. If IsNumeric() contains a leading space or dash symbol the function thinks it is a number when it should not be. For example:
'IsNumeric(1234)=True
'IsNumeric(12 34)=False
'IsNumeric( 1234)=True (should be False)
'IsNumeric(-1234)=True (should be False)


Application: OpenOffice VB, LibreOffice VB

Insert the IsNum() function in your code and replace all instances of IsNumeric() with IsNum().


Public Function IsNum(StringToCheck As String) As Boolean
'This function was created to resolve an IsNumeric bug that exists in some versions of OO VB.
'IsNumeric(1234)=True
'IsNumeric(12 34)=False
'IsNumeric( 1234)=True (should be False)
'IsNumeric(-1234)=True (should be False)
If (IsMissing(StringToCheck) Or StringToCheck = "") Then
StringToCheck = "T" 'in order to return false
End If
if Mid(StringToCheck, 1, 1) = " " or Mid(StringToCheck, 1, 1) = "-" Then
IsNum = False
Else
IsNum = IsNumeric(StringToCheck)
End If
End Function
