Read the string to be written char by char.
if char = " " then write a new line

I don't know in vbscript, but this is how it works in vb.net

 Dim youroutputstring As String = "I want to go"

 Dim stringlength As Integer = YourOutputString.length

 Dim p As Integer = 1

 Dim a As Integer = 1
 

 Do Until p = stringlength

      If Mid(youroutputstring, p, 1) = " " Then

        ' write word to file

        ' test with: msgbox(Mid(youroutputstring, a, (p - a))) 

        ' WRITE WITH YOUR OWN CODE: Mid(youroutputstring, a, (p - a)) & vbcrlf

      a = p

      End If

 p = p + 1

 Loop
 

' print last word also

' test with: MsgBox(Mid(youroutputstring, a, (p + 1 - a)))

' WRITE WITH YOUR OWN CODE: Mid(youroutputstring, a, (p - a)) & vbcrlf

Open in new window
