DTS syntax questioin

yechan asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-10

I am looking at some VBScript that nees to be convered looks like the following

If DTSSource("Col1") > 0 then
    'do something here.
end if

What I am wondering is whether the above syntax checks whether Col1 is null, or whether Col1 contains a number value greater than 0, or checks whether the length of the string is greater than 0.  Looking at the datetpe of Col1, it has been decalred as Char(8).  I wonder if the logic changes if the data type were to change to datetime for example.
