Test For False Instead of Zero

Test For False Instead of Zero

If you’re checking a numeric value against 0, one option is to usethe “” operator:

 If iNumber  0 Then ... End If 

It is faster, however, to check the variable with an If statement.

 If iNumber Then ... End If 

These two statements are equivalent, but the second example willrun faster, albeit with some loss of readability.
