This chapter has already presented two ways of storing data:
Value types and primitive value types for saving fast, but small data structures, such as date values, integer values, floating-point values, True/False values, positions and sizes, and characters and strings.
Reference types for saving larger amounts of data, such as controls and pictures.

Suppose that you have saved five names in variables. This, in and of itself, is not a problem:
