Hi

I'm trying to convert something like this:

q1 = cint(request.form("q1"))
q2 = cint(request.form("q2"))
q3 = cint(request.form("q3"))
q4 = cint(request.form("q4"))
q5 = cint(request.form("q5"))

into something like this:

for i = 1 to 5
      q&i = Request.Form(q&i)
next

any ideas?

Typically an array variable would be used for something like that, so you would have:

Dim q(5)
for i = 1 to 5
      q(i) = Request.Form("q" & i)
next
