hi experts..
i have this a number that consists of unknown no of digits(1 or 12 ... or 12345).
i need firstly to reverse this number for example if the number is 12345 it should be converted to 54321.
also i have to put a dot between every digit so it should be 5.4.3.3.1.
Any idea?

Hi ramma,

Dim mystring
Dim mynewstring
mystring="12345"
Dim intpos
for intpos = len(mystring) to 1 step -1
    mynewstring = mynewstring & substring(mystring,intpos,1) & "."
next
response.write mynewstring

This should show how you can achieve this.

College assigment ?

I remember one of the questions in my college was

How many direct connections does it take to connect n computers together? Suppose you have a computer in each of the 50 states in the United States; how many direct connections would you need?

Dear Tim .. I got this error in this line :

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
mynewstring = mynewstring & substring(mystring,intpos,1) & " "
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the error message :

Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A000D)
Type mismatch: 'substring'
/people/REVERSE.asp, line 15

Any Idea??

mystring = StrReverse(mystring)
for i = 1 to Len(mystring)

my bad, if you want to remove the last extra space, you could do this instead, i also forgot to wwrite in the last response.write

dim mystring,newstring
mystring="12345"
mystring = StrReverse(mystring)
for i = 1 to Len(mystring)
  newstring = newstring & mid(mystring,i,1)
  if not i = Len(mystring) then
    newstring = newstring & " "
  end if
next
response.write newstring
