Hi guys, I need something similar to excel's 'indirect' function, but in vbscript.

The idea is like this:
helloworld = 3
part1 = "hello"
part2 = "world"
myvariable = part1 & part2

In the above, myvariable would have the value of "helloworld" but what I want is for it to be the *value* of helloworld ie 3.

Kind of like INDIRECT (Part1 & Part2).

Any thoughts?

Hi Nathan08,
Try eval() function.
<%
Response.write(eval(myvariable))
%>

Hmm, I knew about eval but didn't think it would work in vbscript.  Anyway, it does!  Thanks
