- why declare a variable if you can't declare a type?

To catch you when it's 4am and you are falling into your keyboard and you
try coding something like:

dim myvar

... blah blah other code...

myver = myver + 1

and you spend 4 hours wondering why the variable "myvar" is unchanged.

(If you set explicit on, then ASP will bleat that myver is undeclared.)

Been there, done that, got the T-Shirt ;-)
