I am wanting to find a way of using a VBScript to modify the IP address that I have for an existing DNS Host (A) record without deleting it and then re-creating it.

    I'm afraid this has not helped me. My knowledge of VB Scripting is all but non-existent apart from running a VBScript. The link shows me a VB Script that can be used to ADD a record to DNS whereas I want to be able to MODIFY an existing record.

    Many thanks
