Could you post the entire code please?

>> Highlights "For i = 1 To"

"For i = 1 to" is incomplete. You need a number after the "to". For example:

For i = 1 to 10
    DoEvents
Next i

From the error you describe, it sounds like you are using the same variable for two For/Next loops nested within each other, like this:

For i = 1 to 10
    For i = 1 to 10
        DoEvents
    Next i
Next i

You need to use a different variable for each nested For/Next loop.

Without your code I can't help any more :-)

Your nesting your loops.  For instance this will cause it...

For i = 1 to 100
    'do something
     For i = 100 to 200
         'do something else
           
The compiler can't use i because it's already in use by the for loop

    For i = 1 To Login.access.ListItems.Count
            NBuf = NBuf & Login.access.ListItems(i) & " X "
            If (Login.access.ListItems.Count Mod 5) = 0 Then
                If frmLogin.WhisperBack.Value = 1 Then
                    Send "?msg " & strAccount & " " & NameBuf
                Else
                    Send NBuf
                End If
                NBuf = ""
            End If
            Wait (2)
        Next i

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

hi..

try this

Dim temp

temp =   Login.access.ListItems.Count
   For i = 1 To temp
  ...
  ...
  ...
 Next i

Also plz chk if the temp is getting correct value
by MsgBox temp or Debug.print temp

Also Please chk if you have Declared i as Global

I know there are ways to split points.  I think it's called an assisted answer.  I don't remember what it looks like, but that's what you would search for in the help section.

Glad we could help, but why did you select the above answer?

You may want to post a question in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ asking to "unaccept" the answer so you can select the correct one.

There is a "Split Points" link above the "Post a Comment" box at the bottom when the question is open.
