Thanks a lot.
I was wondering if constants are always longints. You've answered that now 
There remains one problem. If I specify the type of a constant like this:
  cTest1: DWord = $03;
it becomes a typed constant, and is treated like a initialized variable, so 
one can not use it in a case like the following construction anymore.
case x of
  cTest1: ...

Thanks again, and best wishes,
