Some recommended prefixes for VBScript variables.
DataType ShortPrefix Prefix Example String s str strFirstName DateTime t dtm dtmStart Integer i int intQuantity Double d dbl dblTolerance Single sng sngAverage Long l lng lngDistance Byte byt bytRasterData Boolean b bln blnFound Array a arr arrMyArray Collection c col colMyCollrction Class cls clsMyObject Error err errOrderNum Object o obj objCurrent
This is designed to generate variable names which are both short and descriptive. For example without a naming convention you might have variables called PartNumber, PartDescription, and Delivery_Date following this naming convention they would become intPart, strPart, dtmDelivery.
Some names are reseverd words, any name which exactly matches a datatype (String, Long, Int) e.g. string = "Testing" will produce an error: Illegal Assignment or compilation error. Using a naming convention prefix makes such naming collisions much less likely.
Try to avoid variable names which duplicate the prefix naming, i.e for a File System Object objFS makes more sense than objFSO - we already know that it's an object from the obj prefix.
The prefix can also be abbreviated to a single digit e.g. sFirstName, iQuantity this assumes you don't have any need to distinguish String from Single or DateTime from Double.
All VBScript variables are variants meaning that a variable can contain a string or an integer number or a date etc, This makes it easy to write VBScript code but it can also be easy to lose track of which variable should contain which type of data.
