there's a missing " at the end of that line. Try:

s_prop24="s.prop24=""" & Results & """"

WHERE and HOW are you displaying your resulting string?...and are you sure that the value in Results doesn't already have quotes around it?

>>the result is
>>s.prop24=""50,800,000""
You originally said
"---in Results variable- the value is 5800000"

If that is true, then what I posted above (ID:24871542) will give you:
s.prop24="50800000"

See example below:
<script  type="text/vbscript">
Dim Results,s_prop24
 Results=5800000
s_prop24="s.prop24=""" & Results & """"
 
alert(s_prop24)
</script>
 
However, it sounds like Results does NOT equal 5800000. It sounds like 
Results equals "5800000" (with the quotes).
 
If that is the case, then you need to use:
s_prop24="s.prop24=" & Results 

Open in new window

I've never used QTP.  ...so you are viewing the value inside some kind of IDE?  This may be the root of the problem as it may be displaying it differently than it is actually represented internally.

How about you display the value FROM WITHIN the Script using a MsgBox?

Something like:

    s_prop24 = "s.prop24=" & Chr(34) & Results & Chr(34)
    WScript.Echo s_prop24

Does it display differently?

EXACTLY...so the QTP Environment is adding the quotes around the value because it is a String variable.  The quotes are not there internally and they are only being placed there for display purposes in the test environment....  =)
