Hi kanye.

what do you want to "calculate" using a string function???

This yields exactly 250 as expected

Hi Gerd,

How do we get a output of 250 if I try to solve without the software?

What do you mean by "try to solve"?  Nothing is being solved.  It is taking your string and converting it to a number.

There's nothing to solve, 'E' = "10 raised to" (or rather the Exponential)

So 2.5E2 = 2,5*10^2 = 250

No need to run labview code.

It will automatically show you 250!!!
