    Dear harish

    NO, Visual Basic do not support unsigned data types. Visual Basic only supports 2-byte and 4-byte signed integers

    There are a few things you can do if you need to pass an unsigned value of 4 byte type, but its not as nice as having unsigned values like in C.  Read up about it here.
