Excel VBA - Basics videos | Excel VBA Part 8 - Variables in VBA
Posted by Andrew Gould on 21 January 2014
Variables are essential in all sorts of programming languages, and VBA is no exception. This video takes you through the basics of working with simple data-type variables and will explain the difference between non-declared and explicitly-declared variables, including why explicitly-declared variables are worth the effort! You'll see how to choose the best data type for your variables as well as learn about the consequences if you get it wrong. Finally you'll find out what the 'scope' of a variable means and how to set the scope appropriately for the subroutine that you're writing.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
