Document with Remarks

A remark is a message that you put inside program code. Programmers concerned with maintenance or future modifications know that ample remarks help verify code. Visual Basic ignores remarks, and users don't see them because users don't see the program's code.

Programmers often add remarks to their programs for the following purposes:

  • To state the programmer's name and the date that the program was written.

  • To describe the overall goals of the program.

  • To describe the goal of a particular procedure.

  • To explain tricky or difficult statements so that others who modify the program later can understand the lines of code.
