I think this question has been asked a million times before, but I can't help but ask; How do I convert a number value in a string into a variable?
For example; If I have a string that says a$="100", how do I take the number within the string and convert it into a variable?
The reason why I'm wondering is because I am trying to set a string's text equal to a variable, then manipulate the string so that I can save them to a text file, then take the number value from the text file and convert it back into a variable so that I can create a basic save system.
If I can't convert a value within a string, then what are my alternatives to making a simple save system?

Man everybody got aids n' $h1t.

MyValue = Val(MyString$)

Thanks! It turns out I made a different error than I thought... I know what the val() property (command?) does, but I think the problem I was having didn't involve that.
