Dim tempData() As String
Dim i As Long
'tempdata will be something like "a" & chr$(0) & "blah" & Chr$(1)
Winsock.GetData tempData    
    tempData = Split(tempData, Chr$(1))
   
    For i = LBound(tempData) To UBound(tempData)
        msg = Split(tempData, Chr$(0))
        Select Case msg(0)
            Case "a"
                MsgBox "blah"
            Case "b"

It should be more like this:

    Dim tempData As Variant
    Dim msg As Variant
   
    Dim inputData As String
    Dim i As Long

    'tempdata will be something like "a" & chr$(0) & "blah" & Chr$(1)
    Winsock.GetData inputData, vbString
    tempData = Split(inputData, Chr$(1))
   
    For i = LBound(tempData) To UBound(tempData)
        msg = Split(tempData, Chr$(0))
        Select Case msg(0)
            Case "a"
                MsgBox "blah"
            Case "b"
                MsgBox "bleh"
        End Select
    Next i

Idle_Mind, but i have solved that problem by adding -1

 tempData = Split(inputData, Chr$(1))
   
    For i = LBound(tempData) To UBound(tempData) -1 '<---
