Variables are used to store information temporarily so that it can be used within your project. You have to keep a few rules in mind.

  • Variables must start with a letter (no numbers or special characters).  You can include numbers, just not the first character.
  • There can be no spaces in the variable.  You can use an underscore character as a space, or just capitalize the first letter of each word in the Variable ( thisIsMyVariable ) or ( this_is_my_variable ).
  • Variable names cannot be longer than 250 characters.
  • Finally, there are some words that are off limits because they are used by the program, like “Sheet” or “Workbook”
