An enumeration type used in VARIANT, TYPEDESC, and safearrays.

The following listing identifies the enumeration that applies to each.

// VARENUM usage key,
// [V] - May appear in a VARIANT.
// [T] - May appear in a TYPEDESC.
// [P] - may appear in an OLE property set.
// [S] - May appear in a Safe Array.
VT_EMPTY            [V]   [P]         // Not specified.

VT_I2               [V][T][P][S]      // 2-byte signed int.
VT_I4               [V][T][P][S]      // 4-byte-signed int.
VT_R4               [V][T][P][S]      // 4-byte real.
