well you can allocate a chunk of memory for use, and access it anytime, and release it when you're done.  But that is a scary way of doing things since that opens the road to nasty errors and bugs.

What is it that you want to do and we'll find a suitable solution for you.

the program that i want to do is expert system
this system will ask the question and will require the user click yes or no. if the user select, yes, the fact will insert into memory, this fact will match with the rule in the knowledge base, for ex:
if car cannot start
then car got problem

the expert will ask the user is it car cannot start
if the user select yes, then "car cannot start" insert to memory, it will match rule above and concluson that can make is car got problem.

i know how to do it in prolog but how's in vb ??

You could use an array of variables (strings, booleans, numbers). These arrays are VB safe and will be cleared at the program's/procedures end (or by hand using Erase).
