# Classic ASP counter loop

I'm having trouble writing a simple script. I need to have a number of variables named like A0, A1, A2, A3, etc. for a shopping cart checkout. But I can't find the right syntax to join the "A" part with the number part. Here's some code that doesn't work:
<%
i=0
while i < 10
u=cstr(i)
A&u=i
i=i+1
wend
response.Write(A0)
%>
Thanks, Kim

The best thing to do is to create an array variable.  Example below:

<%
i=0
while i < 10
A(i) = whatever value you're after
i=i+1
wend
response.Write(A(i))
%>

Use an array. They are designed for things like this.

But if you really must, you have to use Execute()

``````<%
Dim i, myArray(10)
i = 0
While i < 10
myArray(i) = 1
i = i + 1
Wend
Response.write myArray(0)
%>

<%
i=0
while i < 10
u=cstr(i)
Execute("A" & u & "=i")
i=i+1
wend
response.Write(A0)
%>
``````
