The Goal:
I'm trying to use regular expressions to find repeating patterns in a string.
The string is "__CarrierCode__RZP__LocationCode__DQ1__Server1Nr__"
I want to thus find
"__CarrierCode__" , "__LocationCode__" and "__Server1Nr__"
The pattern is (__\w+?__)+

The code I'm using:
    Dim searchStr As String
    searchStr = "__CarrierCode__RZP__LocationCode__DQ1__Server1Nr__"
    Dim regExp As Object
    Set regExp = CreateObject("vbscript.regexp")
    Dim colregmatch As MatchCollection
    With regExp
        .Pattern = "(__\w+?__)+"
        .IgnoreCase = True
        .Global = True
        .Multiline = True
    End With
    Set colregmatch = regExp.Execute(searchStr)
    Dim match As match
    For Each match In colregmatch
        Debug.Print match.Groups(1).Value

The Problem
The type Match is known by Intellisense, but not by the compiler.
I get a "data member not found" for match.Groups(1).Value.
