Hi,

I'm looking to call or set the value of a variable with the variable name stored as a string.

for example,

Dim value as String = "12345"
Dim VarName as String = "value"

Messagebox.show( someprocedure(VarName) )

' in this case i world be looking a message box containing: 12345

this examble does not reflect what i need this function for... I need to be able to loop though
multiple values and call / set there values.

Any help would be appresiated.

Thanks,

Tommy
