No. I do not use "Allow dim a%, a&..." because if forces me to define using "dim as long..." syntax and not the old style '&' which in the long run makes the code less ambiguous to any one else that may ever read it or in my case maybe if the memory starts to go first where I am will be saying "What was I thinking when I wrote that."
