#### convert string to mathematical expression

```Hello,

what's wrong with below code ?
I want to get result of equation.

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

firstnumber = InputBox("Please, give me first number")

secondnumber = InputBox("Please, give me second number")
Myoperator = InputBox("Please give me an operator, for example + or - ")
Myresult = Val(firstnumber) & Myoperator & Val(secondnumber)

wiersz = Range("A1").Row

Myresult = Val(Myresult)
Cells(wiersz, 1).Value = firstnumber
Cells(wiersz, 2).Value = Myoperator
Cells(wiersz, 3).Value = secondnumber

```I'm not sure why your code doesn't work (perhaps someone else could explain
it), but either of the following lines will put a formula into Cells(wiersz,
5) instead of a value, giving you the displayed result you need.

Cells(wiersz, 5).Formula = "=" & Cells(wiersz, 1).Value & Myoperator &
Cells(wiersz, 3).Value
Cells(wiersz, 5).Formula = "=" & firstnumber & Myoperator & secondnumber

You don't need the 3 lines referring to Myresult.

```Can you tell us what problem(s) you are experiencing?

Do you want to put a formula in a cell or actually evaluate that

I want to evaluate that formula, but as I tell, it's always only string
not equation which Excel should proceed

Try:

=====================
Myresult = Evaluate(firstnumber & Myoperator & secondnumber)

wiersz = Range("A1").Row

Cells(wiersz, 1).Value = firstnumber
Cells(wiersz, 2).Value = Myoperator
Cells(wiersz, 3).Value = secondnumber
Cells(wiersz, 4).Value = "="
Cells(wiersz, 5).Value = Myresult
=============================
```

Converting to Money 2004 from Quicken2002
I am trying to decide whether to stick with Quicken or move to Money. TaxCut and MS are offering a good rebate but I cannot convert my data with the trial edition of Money.

Checking this group suggests that this is not an isolated incident. If I cannot convert, I cannot switch. There is too much to enter. Is there a log file somewhere that might tell me more?
