Initialize Variables from the Declaration

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Is there a way to initialize a variable as it is being declared?  In a number of cases the variable needs to be reset.  It seems that there was some method for performing a:

Dim i As Integer = 0, but the different ways attempted all end up with a compile error:
      Expected: end of statement

So it seems that there may not be a way to do this, but thought it prudent to ask the Experts prior to using another method.
