Posted on 2001-06-21

I wish to write a statement that allows me to add an increment to a string.
eg,
repeat until i = 11
i=i+1
cat = "Number" + i

so i get cat = "Number 1"
cat = "Number 2"

Thanks

For i = 1 to 11
cat = "Number " & i
next

dim intX as integer
dim strCode as String

For intX = 1 To 9999
strCode = "Number " & Format(intX, "0000")
debug.Print strCode
Next

This gives you "Number 0001" to "Number 9999"

Optional Code return same result:

Dim i As Integer
i = 1
List1.Clear
Do Until i > 11
i = i + 1
Loop

As cmgarnett suggests format is a good function. It handles null values which you will discover the more time you spend with VB.  So if you get in the habit it the best to use.  You can also use CSTR() and STR()

Format(123,"0") produces "123" ' output controlled by format string
Cstr(123) Produces "123"

angelIII suggests using "& I" which is fine because it will work in your circumstaces.  It works by converting the number to a variant first then a string.  But if you use the & operator instead of the + (concatination) in other circumstances you may get problems.  So it is better to get into a habit of using Format, CStr or STR whenever  you need to convert numeric to string.   Others may not share this view.

hope this helps, inthedark.
