Type Statement Question

Hello Experts:

Is there a way to (re)initialize a type statement so all of the elements of that type statement are reset.  For Instance:

Private Type TestType
 a as string
 b as integer
 c as double
End Type

Dim X as TestType

I'd like to be able to issue a command to initialize a,b and c.

Is this possible or does each element need to be initialized?

If i understood what you need:
You don't have to initialize each, just only what you need. Take in mind that if you not initialize every memebre, it will takes default valus for each type (o to integer/long..., empty string for strings, false for boolean and so on)

Now, if you want to clear all initialized valñues for a given variable of type TestType, just declare another one:

dim other as TestType
set X = other
