    Like or not like...

    really nosy today, another question about LIKE this time.

    There's some grey fading indicaction of memory in my head that LIKE would work with STRING-expression and variables - so copies the type of the variable.

    As this
    Dim A As Long
    Dim B Like A ' B would be Long now
    
    but somehow it does not work. Did it work once- or did i just dream this? Has it been changed? Is it broken?
    I think there are missing some Forum-sections as beta-testing and support

    Hi Rene,

    I'm too confused some time. Too options
    LIKE accept a string expression that will evaluate into a type expressed as a string.

    So options are:
    Dim a As Long
    Dim b As a
    Dim c Like "long"
    Dim d Like "lo" & "ng"
