I am reading a string attribute from ms crm in temp string variable then i am converting it to type integer memcod so that i need to pass it as integer type to xml but it sounds strange i am not using a string or double its throws the following exception Conversion from string "
<fetch version='1.0' ><entity na
The problem is the way you tried to concatenate a bunch of strings together with an integer,
memcod, by using the
This code produces the same exception at runtime:
Conversion from string "<foo>" to type 'Double' is not valid.
Dim n as Integer = 0 Dim test As String = "<foo>" + n + "</foo>"
Clearly, VB sees the integer there and thinks that you're trying to do arithmetic. I guess it figures you want a
double because it can't hazard a guess what else you might want. This bizarre code, for example, sets
"11". That's a string equal to
Dim n As Integer = 0 Dim test As String = "5" + n + "6"
You can work around this issue in two ways.
One, use VB's backwards compatible dedicated string concatenation operator instead of
Dim test As String = "<foo>" & n & "</foo>"
Two, explicitly stringify
Dim test As String = "<foo>" + n.ToString() + "</foo>"
