Text Manipulation

Is Visual Basic capable of taking in a text into a text box, and making a cloze test out of it, i.e. blanking out every 5th word or so with a small text box, accepting or refusing a user input into these small textboxes, adding up the score etc.???

You can do all you want. But for what you are asking, you need to do some programmation.
If you explain a little more, I can lead you in the righ way.

A cloze test is: given a text with some words blanked out, fill in the blanks.For any given text and number N, I want to implement a fill-in-the-blanks test, where every Nth word is a blank.  The user would then type in a word he thinks may be the answer (for each and every blank), and the program will tell him whether he is right or not, and may even provide hints such as the first letter if he inputs the wrong word more than once.
This is what I meant!!

So can you tell me exactly how i do this please?
You deleted your "URGENT" question while I was typing an answer.
Here it is anyway:

Insert the Office CD and it should "auto-run".
If not, with the CD in the drive, click "Start"-> "Run"-> and type "D:\setup.exe" (no quotes) on the command line, followed by clicking "OK".
(Assuming D: is the drive letter for your CDROM)

Let me know if you need more.
