What is the difference in the “scope” of these two Public variables (that are in the same VB6 project):
1. variable, sPubInFrm, declared as Public in one of the project’s forms, and
2. variable, sPubInMod, declared as Public in one of the project’s modules?

Does it make any difference if the form is the "Startup object" for the project?

a public variable in a form will be available as member of the form object, managed as per instance of the form
a public variable in a module will be available everywhere in the project, single instance within the whole project
