Hi folks, I'm using vb2010.
Trying to parse this string 8.29933968E-04 into a number so I can plot in on a spreadsheet.
 

if this number were like 1283912839E-5(that is, 'integer'&(E-xxx) , without the decimal point in the number ) , then I could've used
 
string x = "1283912839E-5"
decimal dec = Decimal.Parse( x, NumberStyles.AllowExponent )
 
but this does not work for my number.
What should I use?
 
Thx

Try:
string s = " 8.29933968E-04";
decimal d = decimal.Parse(s, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Float);

Your "string" is not a valid exponent. It's missing a decimal point.
