Declarations are nonexecutable code statements that name external procedures, constants, or variables and define their attributes (such asdata type). You write declarations for form, standard, or class modules. To entermodule-level declarations, go to the Declarations section of a module. To enter global declarations, go to the Declarations section of a module and use the Public statement for constants and variables. You can also use the Dim, Static, and Privatekeywords to make declarations.

You can also enter procedure-level declarations. For whatever code level and technique you use to declare a variable or constant, specificscoping rules may apply.
