I am trying to explain to a colleague about using rounded brackets to covert the type of a passed parameter to match the type expected by the code being called. For example:
Dim strMyName as string
Dim intLengthOfJob as integer

sub myCode(strEmployeeName as string,lngJobAge as long)
end sub

strMyname = "Fred"
myCode strMyName, (intLengthOfJob)
What is this type of implicit argument type conversion actually called (in MS speak) ?

Many thanks.
