Here's what I want to do...

( No Option Explicit )
dim abc as integer
abc = 23
whatever(abc)$ = "Testing..."
msgbox whatever(abc)$ = "testing..."

Now... I'm hoping that whatever(abc)$ really is whatever23$
How can I do this?  Thanks.

This is from the VISBAS-L Digest - 11 Sep 1998 - Special issue (#1998-1188)

'Form1 Code:
Private Sub Form_Load()
    Text1.Text = "Form2"
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    LoadFormByName Text1.Text
End Sub

Private Sub LoadFormByName(sFormName As String)
    Dim NewForm As Form
    Set NewForm = Forms.Add(sFormName)
    NewForm.Show
End Sub

Sorry... thats not what I want....
what I'm looking for is....

that if
abc = 23
then when you do
whatever(abc) = "ya"

whatever23 = "ya"

But if abc = 13
then I want it to do:
whatever(abc) = "ya"
whatever13 = "ya"

I want it to make those varibles at runtime.

Hope this clarifies.

This is not possible in VB (or any other language that I know of.  What you have in you code sample is an array with the name 'whatever' and you have set the 23rd element in this array to 'testing'

The correct way to read this value is:
msgbox whatever(23)

btw, that is possible in Perl (you said its not possible in any other language)  It's called an associative array.  It goes like:
$whatever{'23'} = "Hello!";
or
$whatever{'foo'} = "bar";

Quite right, about what I said, and I don't know Perl, and that is probably why I didn't know that it could do it... Then again, here is exactly what I said: "...or any other language that I know of...".

Good luck.
