# RE: Data typing in MV Basic

```Surely
OneYear = 101
Current = 0203
*
NextYr = ( Current + OneYear ) "R(0)#4"```
```
would be simpler???

Subject: RE: Data typing in MV Basic

The issue I have had to deal with, which may be common to
this
discussion is where we use fiscal year 0203 for 2002/2003.

If you do A = 0203, then sometimes but not always it becomes
203.  where
a = "0203" it remains 0203.

If you want to add a year to make 0203 to 0304 requires
something like
this
A = 0203
B = ((10000+A)[2,2])+101)[2,2]):(10000+A)[2,2])
(This also takes Y2K into account that is why it looks more
complex than
it should)
