Integer data type

A fundamental data type that holds integers. An Integer variable is stored as a 16-bit (2-byte) number ranging in value from 32,768 to 32,767. The type-declaration character is % (ANSI character 37).

In Visual Basic, you can use Integer variables to store Boolean (True/False) values.
