Sub VBA_Log_Function_Ex1()

'Variable declaration
Dim iValue As Double
Dim dResult As Double

iValue = 1.5

dResult = Log(iValue)

MsgBox "The logarithm value of the number 1.5 is : " & dResult, vbInformation, "VBA Log Function"

End Sub
```

Output: Here is the screen shot of the first example output. ### Example 2: Calculate the log/logarithm value of the number(1)

Here is another example of the VBA Abs function. This below example calculates the log/logarithm value of the number(1).

```'Calculate the log/logarithm value of the number(1)
Sub VBA_Log_Function_Ex2()

'Variable declaration
Dim iValue As Double
Dim dResult As Double

iValue = 1

dResult = Log(iValue)

MsgBox "The logarithm value of the number 1 is : " & dResult, vbInformation, "VBA Log Function"

End Sub
```

Output: Here is the screen shot of the second example output. ### Example 3: Calculate the log/logarithm value of the number(‘4’)

Let us see one more example of the VBA Abs function. This below example calculates the log/logarithm value of the number(‘4’).

```'Calculate the log/logarithm value of the number('4')
Sub VBA_Log_Function_Ex3()

'Variable declaration
Dim iValue As String
Dim dResult As Double

iValue = "4"

dResult = Log(iValue)

MsgBox "The logarithm value of the number '4' is : " & dResult, vbInformation, "VBA Log Function"

End Sub
```

Output: Here is the screen shot of the third example output. ### Example 4: Calculate the log/logarithm value of the number(-10)

Here is a simple example of the VBA Abs function. This below example calculate the log/logarithm value of the number(-10).

```'Calculate the log/logarithm value of the number(-10)
Sub VBA_Log_Function_Ex4()

'Variable declaration
Dim iValue As Double
Dim dResult As Double

iValue = -10

dResult = Log(iValue)

MsgBox "The logarithm value of the number -10 is : " & dResult, vbInformation, "VBA Log Function"

End Sub
```

Output: Here is the screen shot of the third example output. ### Instructions to use Macro Codes
