VB Tips

Tip 1:
Variant variables add additional overhead to execution which can degrade operational performance and also prevents strict type checking. Declaration of variables 'As Variant' must be avoided whenever possible.

Tip 2:
When you set a form's Font property, all the controls that you place on the form will inherit that property and you won't have to set it for each control individually.
