Dim a variable as a unkown type

I have a variable holding a type code that was set earlier

Dim MyType1 As TypeCode = String
Dim MyType2 As TypeCode = Boolean

Then I want to declare a variable using that type code

Dim MyVariable As MyType1 = ""
Dim MyVariable As MyType2 = 1/2/2006

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


are u mean Declar variable As variable ???

Jens FiedererTest Developer/ValidatorCommented:
Declarations are static, so you can't do what you want.

But if you declare MyVariable as Object
MyVariable will be able to hold any kind of data ... and you can still use gettype to figure out the real type.
