A constant is a meaningful name that takes the place of a number or string and never changes. VBScript defines a number of intrinsic constants.
Const MyString = "This is my string." Const MyAge = 49
Const CutoffDate = #6-1-97#
You may want to adopt a naming scheme to differentiate constants from variables. This will prevent you from trying to reassign constant values while your script is running. For example, you might want to use a “vb” or “con” prefix on your constant names, or you might name your constants in all capital letters. Differentiating constants from variables eliminates confusion as you develop more complex scripts.
