# sign in VB

Hello all,

I am in the process of conversion of some visual basic script and came across this:

B = A + (B / 24#)

and

C = 24# * (A - B)

What is the # sign referenced in these two equations?

Thanks

I think that represents a double, though why it's used that way in your example I can't say.
