    A simple VB Question

    I just want to know a space in VB takes up how much memory, or how many spaces take up one byte of memory?

    *tisk *tisk *tisk no it doesn't... and let me just add that who ever you googled that response from should be shot in the head.

    8 bits equal 1 byte, oh and and 1,024 bytes equal 1 kilobyte, and also lets not forget that 1,024 kilobytes equal one megabyte and on and on and on.... blah blah blah. One character alone does not equal all those bytes.

    (edited) Sorry but talk about your deja voo moments

    Have you forgotten unicode?

    Unicode is the new replacement for ascii, its still growing and will one day be able to represent all char's in all languages, unicode is two byes instead of one per char
