    Problems converting a constant

    I have a vbs file which contains a huge list of constants e.g

    Private Const Client = 3

    The problem I am having is that I need to change one of these constants into a variable populated by a function call. e.g

    Private Const Client = MyFunction()

    Naturally this will not work as it is a constant but I cant declare it as :

    Dim Client
    Client = MyFunction()

    because on a million pages which include this file and refer to this variable they will find that Client = nothing.

    Why cant I do this :

    Dim Client = MyFunction()

    There is no option explicit on my page although maybe the many pages including this file may have it on which I cannot change.
    Any ideas how I can get around this?
