vbscript variable with hyphen

I got the error at the following code of my asp file:

ax_FromWoID = lo_Conn.ACNS022V_ACAS022.FROM-WO-ID

It seems that the VBScript handled WO as a separate varible, and treated it as subtraction. But, it should be FROM-WO-ID is a element/attribute of a dll.

Therefore, how can do what I want? Just pass the attribute value from the dll to the variable ax_FromWoID without re-design and compile the dll.

Thanks!

It may be worth trying

ax_FromWoID = lo_Conn.ACNS022V_ACAS022.[FROM-WO-ID]

VB enums allow the use of spaces and - inside []. Although I agree with the others that I'd avoid it.

it's generally not a good idea to use the - sign.

Not sure if it will work but you can try:
Eval("lo_Conn.ACNS022V_ACAS022.FROM-WO-ID")

yes.. don't use the dash sign - try instead to use the underscore _

ax_FromWoID = Eval("lo_Conn.ACNS022V_ACAS022.FROM-WO-ID")

I got the following error:
Object doesn't support this property or method "lo_Conn.ACNS022V_ACAS022.FROM"

Any help?

But, I don't have the coding to re-write the dll to use underscore!!! Therefore, I want to seek ways to solve this. Thanks!

In the eval statement the - sign is also evaluated. I think you are out of luck. AFAIk there is no way of retrieving what you want to retrieve with plain ASP.

Try to create a 2nd component that will call that component and return the values..
