First of all:
Is there something in VB that is equivalent to C++'s #define statements?

Then to my real question:
I would like to have a file that is shared between Visual C++ 6 and VB6. It is a list of keywords for communications between the two (actually XML tag names). It is my hope to ensure, that there will be no risk of communications errors due to misspellings of tag names (which might then just be ignored on the receiver side.

Thanks in advance.
