I am sending data from one winsock to another, I can format this in a string as so...

StrString = Username,IP,Lport,RPort,FileName,Message

This is devided by comma delimited...and I have tried a bunch of characters to extract this..maybe I am just tired

What I need to do is this... break the string up
Take strString and put it into:

Dim User as string = The user in the string
Dim IP as string = The IP from the string
dim LPort as String = The Lport
dim RPorts as string = the RPort
Dim Filename as String = The File name
Dim Message as string = The message

I need this "broke out" of the string ...I am sure you get this, I forgot how to do it right and my ms help stuff doesnot remind me...

Dim ArrayArgs() as string

Const USER_NAME = 1

ArrayArgs = split("Username,IP,Lport,RPort,FileName,Message",",")

Then use

LOL...I figured it out just before I got your comment, I just did the number after...like this:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
'Text1.Text = "User1,,2000,4000,c:\readme.txt,This is a text file"
Dim InputString
Dim Name As String
Dim IP As String
Dim LPort As String
Dim RPort As String
Dim FileName As String
Dim Message As String

InputString = Text1.Text
InputString = Split(InputString, ",", -1)
Name = InputString(0)
IP = InputString(1)
LPort = InputString(2)
RPort = InputString(3)
FileName = InputString(4)
Message = InputString(5)

MsgBox "Name" & Name & vbCrLf _
& "IP:" & IP & vbCrLf & "Local Port: " & LPort _
& vbCrLf & "Remote Port: " & RPort & vbCrLf & _
"File to be transfered: " & FileName & vbCrLf & _
"Message from sender: " & Message, vbInformation, "Split Test"
End Sub

Both do exactly the same thing, but your way is way better for true newbie as your pre-names the splits. I do thank you for your comment, and I am letting the points go...thanks.
