     This is a function to get the base of any number from the exponential and power. Example BaseOf((9^5),5)=9. This escaped my memory so I thought maybe someone else too needed it posted! I was not taught exponential in this similar manor where (1/Power) makes sense of subjected to the power of where as there may be more then one result, so I'm posting it to remember it also.

X ^ (1/4) does the same thing with much less code and much faster performance

Thanks, that's exactly what I had seen another coder do along time ago, but I forgot where, so I was trying to remember and I got side tracked doing this post! lol

I'm going to cheat, I'll post my original code here, and update to that.

Function Frt(ByVal X As Double)
Frt = (Sqr(Sqr(((((((((X ^ 2) / X) ^ 2) / X) ^ 2) / X) ^ 2) / X) / (4 ^ 2))) * 2)
End Function
