VB Programming Basic Concepts - Declaring Variables
There are mainly two types in VB:
1. Object Data Type :
These variables are declared as objects. These can be assigned a value through the Set statement.
Ex : Dim varName As Type
If the type is declared as String then only string value can be assigned to it else it will throw a compile time error.
Type may be any VB object like Integer, Long, String, Date, Double, Currency, Boolean, Byte etc.
2. Variant Data Type :
These are the variables whose data types can be changed easily by assigning different values.
Ex : Dim varName
varName=“IA2Tech” // Here varName is a string
varName=111 // Here varName is an integer
