Constants list of the language VBScript

Writing constants (their text notation) can be used anywhere in the script instead of current values, which allows comfortable writing the value without knowing its numeric value. Using the text notation of constants makes the script better arranged and easier modifiable. Because constants are defined in the VBScript, they needn't be declared in the script.

VBScript constants of data type values (See also Data types VBScript):
