Access: Str Function


In Access, the Str function returns string representation of a number.

The syntax for the Str function is:

Str( number )

The required number argument is a Long containing any valid numeric expression. When numbers are converted to strings, a leading space is always reserved for the sign of number. If number is positive, the returned string contains a leading space and the plus sign is implied.


Str (7)          returns " 7"
Str (-154)     returns "-154"

VBA Code

Dim MyString
MyString = Str(367)

This example uses the Str function to return a string representation of a number. Now the MyString variable would contain the value " 367 ".

SQL query

You can also use the Str function in a query.

SELECT Str(7) AS Expr1
FROM Orders

If you'd like to see how it works, enter SQL statement and press Execute
