Equal Exact Data Type Function
Comparisons Class

Public Function EqualExactDataType( _
      ByVal vOne As Variant _
    , ByVal vTwo As Variant _
    , Optional ByVal vCompare As Variant _
    ) As Boolean

Return True if the values vOne and vTwo equal each other, otherwise return False.
Considers the values of all Visual Basic data types to be distinct so that, for example, a Single value of 34.5! would not equal a Double value of 34.5#.

    EqualExactDataType("ALL", "all", vbBinaryCompare) = False
    EqualExactDataType("all", "ALL", vbBinaryCompare) = False
    EqualExactDataType("ALL", "all", vbTextCompare) = True
    EqualExactDataType("3", 3) = False
    EqualExactDataType(Null, 3) = False

    StrComp Function (Visual Basic)
If the arguments vOne and vTwo have the same data type, then compare the values.
If arguments are of different types, then perform the comparison ON THE VARTYPE OF THE ARGUMENTS.
Function returns:
    True  if vOne =  vTwo
    False if vOne <> vTwo
    Null = Null -> True.
    Empty = Empty -> True.
    Use String comparisons on strings.
    Use Numeric comparison on numbers and/or dates.
    The data type of both arguments must be the same for comparison to take place.
vOne: First of two values which are to be compared for equality.
vTwo: Second of two values which are to be compared for equality.
vCompare: Specifies the comparison type and sort order/collating sequence used when performing string comparisons. vCompare defaults to Binary comparisons if it is missing or Null or cannot be fixed up to a number.
