A string is a data type, and as far as I know of, you are not able to set a size.
Basically, if you want to specify a exact size, you could create a Char array.

You could also just programatically allow a specific sized string to be entered into the variable.

All the <VBFixedString(15)> does is indicate that the string should be fixed length, it doesn't enforce it.

I would likea a way to force an error to be thrown if the wrong string length is assigned.

jong3, how do I declare a char array and assign values to it?
