I found some really neat visual basic code at the ESRI web site that
calculates the distance from a point to the nearest polygon.  However,
the calculated distances are put in a field that is formatted as text.
I would like the distances to be in a number format so I can work with
them statistically.  Is there an easy way to convert from a text format
to a number format?  I am working in 9.2.
