How to put each chars of a line of a text file into an array ?

here is my code:

Set textStreamObject = fso.OpenTextFile("data.tmp", 1, False, 0)
textzone2.Text = textStreamObject.ReadLine
Set textStreamObject = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing
textzone.Text = "TEST PASSED"

it reads the first line of the file data.temp and its shown in textzone2.

Now id like to put all chars of that line into an array. any suggestions ?

Try a loop with and use mid$
an example

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim str As String
Dim a() As String
Dim i As Integer
str = "hello"
ReDim a(1 To Len(str))
i = 1
Do While i <= Len(str)
a(i) = Mid$(str, i, 1)
i = i + 1
Loop

End Sub

the array a will contains "h" "e" "l" "l" "o" after this code is run

why not use a code like this

Private Sub SomeFunc()
     Dim strLine as String

     Open "C:\data.tmp" For Input as #1

     ' Get the first line
     Line Input #1, strLine
     Close #1

     txtTextBox.Text strLine
End Sub

Good Luck

Well, First, Why????
Seems like a kind of pointless thing to do.

something like

    Dim myArr() As String
    Dim ptr As Long
    ReDim myArr(1 To Len(textzone2.Text))
    For ptr = 1 To Len(textzone2.Text)
        myArr(ptr) = Mid(textzone2.Text, ptr, 1)
    Next ptr

navneet77 You got there first, and good point about Mid$ rather than just Mid
