This lesson covers the theory of good, structured programming techniques. By breaking your application into several procedures, you'll streamline your coding efforts, write more accurate code, and speed subsequent maintenance. Before you can successfully write well-structured code, you'll have to master argument passing. This lesson examines Visual Basic's two argument-passing methods and describes when and why you would choose one over the other.
