Here are some easy points for someone, I'm sure.

I want to decalre a new datatype to operate like Boolean does, but I need three options instead of two.

Public Type LogOpt
    'The three options are:
       1. OpenNow (integer value 1)
       2. CloseNow (integer value 2)
       3. OpenCloseNow (integer value 3)
End Type

What is code to Declare this user defined data type?

Cheers.

Provided the Syntax of for Enumeration which made me think a bit.  But probably a better solution becuase I learned more.
