Remove element from an array in vbscript.

Posted on 2014-04-29

I have an array named 'MemberGroup' which has a number of elements e.g.

Members = ("APPLES 145","BANANAS 234","CELERY 897","DOG 787","ENGINE 546","FLURIDE 878")

I am looking for the best way in vbscript that I can remove an element from this array that contains e.g. 234 - which would remove the BANANAS 234 element? It is important that the array reflects the correct new size and that the element order is not changed in any way.

I am sure this is very simple - any ideas?

You could use Filter

Members = Array("APPLES 145", "BANANAS 234", "CELERY 897", "DOG 787", "ENGINE 546", "FLURIDE 878")
NewMembers = Filter(Members, " 234", False)
