I there a way in vbscript to declare a dynamic variable?

For example:

 Myvariable & i= "Some Text"

 I know you can do it in JavaScript by using a
build in function called Eval,
Eval(Myvariable + i)= "Some Text";

you can use javascript together with vbscript to do this:


<HTML>
<HEAD>

<SCRIPT language='javascript'>

 eval("var variable" + 1 + " = 'a'");
 eval("var variable" + 2 + " = 'b'");
 eval("var variable" + 3 + " = 'c'");

 alert(variable1);
 alert(variable2);
 alert(variable3);

 function jsEval(jscode)
 {
   return(eval(jscode));
 }

</script>

<SCRIPT language='vbscript'>

 msgbox(variable1)
 msgbox(variable2)
 msgbox(variable3)

 dim v4
 jsEval("v4 = 'd'")
 msgbox(v4)

</script>

</head>

<BODY>
</body>
</html>

will also work with server-side code in ASP:


<SCRIPT language='javascript' runat='server'>
 function jsEval(jscode)
 {
   return(eval(jscode));
 }
</script>


<%
 dim v4
 jsEval("v4 = 'd'")
 response.write v4
%>
