Below is my code, how do I test the function name for true or false?  "If A = True" does not work.  Many thanks for any help.

End Function

Ok, why are you testing the 'function name'? Shouldn't you passing a variable into a function to test?

I inherited the code.   Is that poor coding practice?

All the above does is assign true to A. Its basically a global constant.  What is this used for?

So, can it be tested for true or false?

From a different place, yes. Something like this:

If A = true Then
   msgbox "Its True!"
Else
  msgbox "Not working!"
End if

Function A  
   A=true
End Function

Works for me no problem. Please tell me more about your environment and how you are running the code.  

The easiest way to test this is copy the code above into a blank file and save it as Test.vbs. You can run it by double clicking the that file.

Thanks a bunch.
