VbScript and InternetExplorer.Application

I'm using VBScript to generate some HTML and and having some trouble extracting the values of certain form fields using

web = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
value = web.document.all.<variableName>.value

All of my form values are things like:

So instead of having to specifiy each variable assignment using:
value1 = web.document.all.var1.value
value2 = web.document.all.var2.value
value3 = web.document.all.var3.value
value4 = web.document.all.var4.value

I wanted to use an array:
varName = Array ("var1","var2","var3","var4")
for i=0 to ubound(varName)
 value(i) = web.document.all.varName(i).value

Is this even possible?
