VB Data Types
Basic is a strongly typed language. Variables can be declared implicitly on first reference by using a type character. If no type character is present, the default type of Variant is assumed. Alternatively, the type of a variable can be declared explicitly with the Dim statement. In either case, the variable can contain data only of the declared type. Variables of a user-defined type must be explicitly declared. Siebel VB supports standard Basic numeric, string, record, and array data. Siebel VB also supports Dialog Box Records and Objects (which are defined by the application).
