HI folks.

I've got a field in my db that as too many values in it, and I need to split it up.  The character inserted that indicates the split is "&".

For example...

530903356&05/2007&999&&Felix+Nemitz

The first set of numbers is no set length.
The second set should always be the same
The third set is 3 characters
The final set is a name.

I want to split them like this

Num = 1st set
date = 2nd set
secret = 3rd set
Name = Last set

How can I do this with VBscript???

Thanks

Then split it with split function.

<%
val = "530903356&05/2007&999&&Felix+Nemitz"
arr = split(val, "&")
for i = 0 to ubound(arr)
  response.write arr(i) & "<br>"
next
%>

You can use the Split function to get the values into an array:

Dim values
values = Split(String_to_Split,"&")

Now values is an array and:
values(0) = the first part (num)
values(1) = the second part (date)
values(2) = the third part (secret)
values(3) = the fourth part (name)
