And I thought I was being smart! Unfortunately same doesn't work for UDTs, typing in lower converts the type name and all previous references to it to lower case! Grrr!
I hope plenty more participate in the poll. It would be nice to see the stats with a larger sample. Especially like that you have separated advanced, intermediate and new users in the sample, because I have often wondered how many accomplished programmers actually don't force explicit declaration.
Voted intermediate-always. Just as Denis said - I'm too bad a typist not to rely on the capitalisation trick, and I had a few nasty surprises with undeclared variables. Variant data type doesn't always give you what you'd expect to get.
