Integer variables are stored as 16-bit (2-byte) numbers ranging in value from -32,768 to 32,767. Thetype-declaration character for Integer is the percent sign ( % ).

You can also use Integer variables to represent enumerated values. An enumerated value can contain a finite set of unique whole numbers, each of which has special meaning in the context in which it is used. Enumerated values provide a convenient way to select among a known number of choices, for example, black = 0, white = 1, and so on. It is good programming practice to defineconstants using the Const statement for each enumerated value.
