String Literals - Escaping, non-printable characters and line-continuations

Download vba eBook


The assignment of string-literals in VBA is confined by the limitations of the IDE and the codepage of the current user's language settings. The examples above demonstrate the special-cases of escaped strings, special, non-printable strings and long string-literals.

When assigning string-literals that contain characters that are specific to a certain codepage, you may need to consider internationalization concerns by assigning a string from a separate unicode resource file.
