Val Doesn't Work on Formatted Numbers

Beware of the Val() function. It doesn't correctly recognize formatted numbers. Use CInt(), CDbl(), and so on instead:
 
FormattedString = Format(1250, _
        "General")    
        ' = "1,250.00"
Debug.Print Val(FormattedString)
        ' prints 1 !
Debug.Print cDbl(FormattedString)
        ' prints 1250
