 Private Sub Command1_Click()Dim specific As MyClassDim generic As ObjectDim start_time As SingleDim stop_time As SingleDim i As Long	Set specific = New MyClass	Set generic = New MyClass	start_time = Timer	For i = 1 To 100000		specific.value = i	Next i	stop_time = Timer	MsgBox Format$(stop_time - start_time)	start_time = Timer	For i = 1 To 100000		generic.value = i	Next i	stop_time = Timer	MsgBox Format$(stop_time - start_time)End Sub
