<<I have a text field where a math statement like "2*x+3" or "2*(x) + 3" is
entered.
I then want to evaluate this statement for certain values of x.
Is there a simple way of doing this?>>

Can you go into a little more detail about what's getting entered? If the user
is just entering the x, all you have to do is take VAL(editText$)--paying
close attention to all possible number formats, decimal points & so on--and
then plug it into your function, but if they're entering the whole string,
operators and all, it gets stickier...
