Returns e (the base of natural logarithms) raised to a power.

Exp(number)

The number argument can be any valid numeric expression.

If the value of number exceeds 709.782712893, an error occurs. The constant e is approximately 2.718282.

The Exp function complements the action of the Log function and is sometimes referred to as the antilogarithm.

The following 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
