Defult value of an object

I am trying to set a default value for "sheet" below.  Meaning if it hasn't been set to anything yet then return 0 by default.  How do I do that?

private mSheet as long

Public Property Get Sheet() As Long
  Sheet = mSheet
End Property

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can arrange a Constant. When running the Program, Me.Sheet = 1
or any other Value you want.

Const mSheet = 1

Public Property Get Sheet() As Long
  Sheet = mSheet
End Property

Private Sub Form_Load()
Caption = Me.Sheet
End Sub
That looks fine.  By default, long values have a value of 0, so mSheet should be 0 until you change it otherwise.
