I'm back again. This time, I will like to know what's the major difference - in function - between using the New keyword in declaring a variable and not using it.
For example, we can declare variables as:
Dim varName as String
Dim varName as New String()
For the second declaration, I know an object is being instantiated but, I'm confused as to the difference in these methods of declaration since after the declaration, the variable name has got properties that can be called using the dot operator.
