 String reference

Hi all, I must be missing something so obvious, but this is
driving me nuts. What I need is a way to create a reference
to a string in VB5(SP2). Here's a code sample;

'Global var
dim szData as string

public CollectString(byref szPrivateData as string)
        szData=szPrivateData     'This copies the content

Instead of copying the content, I'd like a reference to
szPrivateData which I can keep around.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
