Because testboy has no sense of humor at all... A "D" isn't worth the 5 points... If he graded it at all...

Use VarType function to get the value of a data type.

This example uses the VarType function to determine the subtype of a variable.

Dim IntVar, StrVar, DateVar, MyCheck
' Initialize variables.
IntVar = 459: StrVar = "Hello World": DateVar = #2/12/69#
MyCheck = VarType(IntVar)   ' Returns 2.
MyCheck = VarType(DateVar)   ' Returns 7.
MyCheck = VarType(StrVar)   ' Returns 8.
