Default best way to check for variable being empty

Is this the best way to check for a variable being empty
Code:
if LenB(picco) <> 0
rather than

Code:
if picco <> vbNullString
or

Code:
if picco <> ""
Thanks.

Picco

I use

if picco = ""

all the time... I guess the opposite should work as well

if picco <> ""


Cheers, Joel
