No.

You need to set up a couple of functions to mimic a property

ie: 1 to set a value, 1 to retrieve it.

Hi,
the only way you have to do what you want is to declare Properties Set and Let and Properties Get in a classe module where you want to "share" the variable.
Properties Set/Let allow you to assign to the global variable of a class a object/simple value(number, string,etc).
Propertie Get allow you to retrieve the value that exists in the variable.
If you want more info, i'll be available on monday.

Bye.
