It looks as if the indicator of NaN is that the exponent is higher than the maximum allowed exponent.

I use implicit assignation a lot in my IIS VB Web app. There is no way to directly assign Empty to a variable, yet sometimes I want to set something back to Empty (which is explicitly defined, and is different than Null).

So I keep an inviolate variable that has the value of Empty, and set things equal to it. Tedious, but effective.

Looked in Help and Object Browser to no avail for QNAN...
