Not quite,

it would be more like this.

  Name  as string * 25
  Age   as Integer
end type

DIM My as MyType

IEEE$="Gerard Schlundt           #"     '# is the age in it's 1 byte form.
       ^---- 25 characters -----^A
                                 |-  This would be the age..notice that
                                     the string is formatted so that if you
                                     would pick it up, and drop it into the
                                     MY array, when you would
                                     PRINT MY.AGE it would return whatever
                                     # was in the IEEE it?
