Returns a Double specifying e (the base of natural logarithms) raised to a power.
Exp( number )
The required numberargument is a Double or any valid numeric expression.
If the value of number exceeds 709.782712893, an error occurs. The constante is approximately 2.718282.
Note: The Exp function complements the action of the Log function and is sometimes referred to as the antilogarithm.
Note: Examples that follow demonstrate the use of this function in a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) module. For more information about working with VBA, select Developer Reference in the drop-down list next to Search and enter one or more terms in the search box.
This example uses the Exp function to return e raised to a power.
Dim MyAngle, MyHSin
' Define angle in radians.
MyAngle = 1.3
' Calculate hyperbolic sine.
MyHSin = (Exp(MyAngle) - Exp(-1 * MyAngle)) / 2
