cStr String Function
You can use cStr to turn an integer into a string. This helps make string processing much easier.
The format is simply
YearText = cStr(YearInt)
assuming that YearInt is an integer value, and that YearText is the text version of it that you want to use in text manipulations. So for example if
YearInt = 1995
YearText = "1995"
They make look the same, but you can do things like add and subtract with the YearInt value. With the YearText value, you can do things like count how many characters are in the value, get the leftmost string, get the rightmost string, and so on.
