Hi thunderchicken,

Thank you.

I also found For i = 1 to ....Next without Next i. It looks some different between pear VB and VBScript....Where to find tutotial that explains those things?

Actually, the "Next i" notation is NOT required in "PURE VB" itself.  That is really an artifact for VB's roots in BASIC.  It is used mostly for internal 'documentation', and if you DO NOT supply the loop variable name in the Next statement, VB will automatically step the immediately preceding 'For Loop-Variable...' statement.
