Visual Basic Data Types

Strictly speaking, VBScript only has one data type: the variant. The variant is a special data type that can store many different subtypes. I’ll get to the Variant data type in the next few posts, but first I need to discuss the data types of VBScript’s parent language, Visual Basic. You may be wondering why we need to discuss another language’s data type when VBScript only supports the Variant. This is currently a legitimate question.
