    Manipulating Strings in VB

    Hello All,

    I am a new user to Visual Basic so I'm afraid this is a fairly primitive question. I am trying to create a function that will give a number whose digits go from 1 to specified value, 11 should give 1234567891011. I made the code below:

    Function LONGNUM(x As Integer) As String
    Dim i As Integer, text As String, Answer As Long
    For i = 1 To x
    text = text & CStr(i)
    Next i
    Answer = CLng(text)
    LONGNUM = reversedText
    End Function

    All integer inputs produce absolutely nothing. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for all the help in advance.
