Hi, I have the following script

Dim strMail As String
strMail = "MYNEWNAME"

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set fsoFile = fso.createtextfile("ByTest.vbs")
fsoFile.writeline "set fso = createobject(""WScript.Shell"")"
fsoFile.writeline "wscript.sleep 5000"
fsoFile.writeline "fso.SendKeys ""{TAB}"", True"
fsoFile.writeline "fso.SendKeys ""{TAB}"", True"
fsoFile.writeline "fso.SendKeys ""{TAB}"", True"
fsoFile.writeline "fso.SendKeys CStr(strMail), True"
fsoFile.Close

this script is working w/o 'fsoFile.writeline "fso.SendKeys CStr(strMail), True" ' . How can I pass the value of the strMail variable in vbs script? I have to mention that just for test purpose the value of strMail is like now, otherwise it is store in Access table.

thanks,
augstef

the strMail has to be in vbs file in this format "MYNEWNAME" and isn't and it's required to be able to use it as sendkeys

Sorry,
fsoFile.writeline "fso.SendKeys """ & CStr(strMail) & """, True"
Use double quotes to indicate a single quote in the destination string.
