Split an array into different variables?

Hi guys
Is there any way in asp where we can take an array and assign its elements individually to new variables ?
Like Name/Bob/Age/28/City/NY
would be something like
Strname="Bob" : IntAge=28 : StrCity="NY"

Thanks

Sort of.  You can do this:

     Function SplitArray( strData )
          Dim arr
          Dim dict
          Dim nCounter

          Set dict = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
          arr = Split( strData )
          For nCounter = 0 To UBound(arr) Step 2
               dict(arr(nCounter)) = arr(nCounter+1)
          Next

          Set SplitArray = dict
     End Function

Then you can do this:

     Dim str
     Dim objValues

     str = "Name/Bob/Age/28/City/NY"
     Set objValues = SplitArray( str )

     Response.Write( "Name = " & objValues("Name") )

To Print Out:
     Name = Bob

Will that work for you?


Hope That Helps,

sString  = "Name/Bob/Age/28/City/NY"
aArray = Slit(sString,"/")
For i = 0 To Ubound(aArray) Step 2
     Execute(aArray(i) & " = " & Array(i+1))
Next

Response.write Name & "<br>"

Will that still work if you use "OPTION EXPLICIT"?  Oh, and thanks for reminding me that this line:
     arr = Split( strData )

Should have been:
     arr = Split( strData, "/" )

See my previous post.  There is a small mistake in my original code.  SplitArray should look like this:

     Function SplitArray( strData )
          Dim arr
          Dim dict
          Dim nCounter

          Set dict = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
          arr = Split( strData, "/" )
          For nCounter = 0 To UBound(arr) Step 2
               dict(arr(nCounter)) = arr(nCounter+1)
          Next

          Set SplitArray = dict
     End Function

Enjoy,

To get Sybe's solution working properly, you should change it to this:

sString  = "Name/Bob/Age/28/City/NY"
aArray = Split(sString,"/")
For i = 0 To Ubound(aArray) Step 2
      If ( IsNumeric(aArray(i+1)) ) Then
            Execute(aArray(i) & " = " & aArray(i+1))
      Else
            Execute(aArray(i) & " = """ & aArray(i+1) & """")
      End If
Next
