string to array

Hi there!

Suppose I have the following string:

stringExample =  CStr(Request.Form("certainfield"))

Just for the sake of the question, imagine  93, 94, 106, 114, 134 as the stringExample.

I would like to create an array (say arrayExample) such that:

arrayExample[0] = 93
arrayExample[1] = 94
...
arrayExample[4] = 134

Important: my string is made only of integers separated by commas, but the number of integers is not always the same.

Could you please show me how this could be done?

Thanks,
fskilnik.

simple, you want to use the Split() function:

stringExample =  CStr(Request.Form("certainfield"))
arrayExample = Split( stringExample, "," )        '-- use whatever your separator is for the second parameter

Bill PrewCommented:
Keep in mind that the result of the split will be an array of strings.  You may need to use CInt() on the resulting elements if you want to use it in math or numerical work.

Thanks Big Monty... really simple!

Just one thing (that is part of my original question): what should I put in the place of ??? below...


dim arrayExample, stringExample

stringExample = "92, 23, 45"
arrayExample = Split(stringExample, "," )

for k = 0 to ???
Response.write arrayExample(k)
next k

you could use either UBound (which'll get the top value for the array or you can use, what I prefer, a for each statement:

for each example in arrExample
   Response.Write example & "<br/>"
next

the example highlighted in bold can be whatever you like, think of it as a local variable exclusive to the for loop
