Is there any meaning for declare the variable appended with % and P in Excel VBA ?

Dim I%, P$          

And what's the following implication :
  P = Range(Cells(I + 1, sLink).Address(RowAbsolute:=False, columnAbsolute:=False))

The % and $ symbols are shorthand for declaring I as of type Integer and P as of type String:

I have no idea on the second part of your question.

For the 2nd part of your question, P will contain the range address of Cells(I + 1, sLink). For example, it could contain $A$1 or $B$2:$C$3.
