Dynamic Array Not Responding

Naryan108 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
Hi, I am looping though a string and need to put every instance of the substring into an array to be dealt with later.  I don't know how many elements the array will hold, so I start reDim it as part of the loop.  However, although my quick tests using reponse.write show that I am getting the right info, I can't seem to put them into the array.  That is, when I come to test the array there's nowt in there.

I know there's shorter ways of writing this, but I'm just getting it clear in my head first.

Any help would be a Big help.
dim strLen, strPos, varPos, varArray
dim strArray()
strLen = Len(strHTML)
varPos = 1
varArray = 0
Do while varPos < strLen
	Redim strArray(varArray)
	strPos = instr(varPos, strHTML, "prod", 1)
	If strPos = 0 then exit do
	strArray(varArray) = mid(strHTML, strPos + 4, 2)
	'response.Write(mid(strHTML, strPos + 4, 2))
	'response.write("<br />")
	varPos = strPos + 6
	varArray = varArray + 1
For Each product In strArray
response.write("<br />")
