Due to some reason, I need to combine the lines of codes into one line, as shown in above.

See MSDN VBScript Variables
In VBScript, variables are always of one fundamental data type, Variant.

If I remove the data type from your DIM statement and split it into separate lines, the code runs fine (in VBScript).
Dim val1 'As Integer 
val1=InputBox("Enter a Number","Enter Value") 
Msgbox val1

Open in new window


What is the reason you need the code on one line?

You have coded a VB.Net form of the statement.  Are you developing in VB.Net or VB6/VBA?

In addition to SimonAdept's correct solution on removing the type, if you want it all on one line then simply separate each line by a colon like this:
Dim val1 : val1=InputBox("Enter a Number","Enter Value") : Msgbox val1

Open in new window

Dim val1 As Integer : val1=InputBox("Enter a Number","Enter Value") : Msgbox val1

Open in new window


but I still get the attached error

I need to put all into one line.

As stated before (twice), remove the type of the variable.

Change:

    Dim val1 As Integer :

To:

    Dim val1  :

Look closely at my example...
