dim j1
dim j2
dim combinedArray()

j1 = join(array1,"|")
j2 = join(array2,"|")
j1 = j1 & "|" & j2

combinedArray = split(j1,"|")

or just:

dim combinedArray()
combinedArray = split(join(array1,"|") & "|" & join(array2,"|") ,"|") 'combines array1 & array2

Hello Sir,

Here's a quick script I came up with to do this. With this code, the arrays don't have to be the same size. It will simply combine two individual arrays into one big one by using a dynamic third array (since you may/may not know how big the first two will be.)


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
<!--
Dim intArray1(8)
Dim intArray2(9)
Dim intNewArray()

Public Sub cmdScramble_OnClick()

intValue = 1

for x = 0 to UBound(intArray1)-1
intArray1(x) = intValue
intValue = intValue + 1
next

for x = 0 to UBound(intArray2)-1
intArray2(x) = intValue
intValue = intValue + 1
next

ReDim intNewArray(UBound(intArray1)+UBound(intArray2))

for x = 0 to UBound(intArray1)-1
intNewArray(x) = intArray1(x)
next

y = 0

for x = UBound(intArray1) to (Ubound(intArray1) + UBound(intArray2))
intNewArray(x) = intArray2(y)
y = y + 1
next

for x = 0 to ubound(intNewArray)-1
msgbox intNewArray(x)
next


End sub

-->

</SCRIPT>

with regards,
padmaja.
