Variant Data Type

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Variant is a special data type that can contain any kind of data except fixed-length string data. Variant data can also be the special values Empty, Error, and NULL. This data type is used in extrinsic clients to Visual FoxPro applications because Visual FoxPro is not a strongly typed language.
