How do i  fill an array of integers from the contents of a file. (i have a debug file called  -scores.txt- that has all the exam grades in it ) and Loop through the array and count how many grades are between 0-50, 51-75, and 76-100.

Hi Bob;

The sample code below should do what you are looking for.
Imports System.IO

Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

    '' Linq query to read the data from the file and parse them into there groups
    '' Group 1 = 0 - 50
    '' Group 2 = 51 - 75
    '' Group 3 = 76 - 100
    Dim parseData = (From valStr As String In File.ReadAllLines("C:\Working Directory\scores.txt")
                     Let valInt = GetRange(valStr)
                     Group By valInt Into Group).ToList()

    '' Place the values into the correct label control
    For Each g In parseData
        If g.valInt = 1 Then
            lbl0_50.Text = g.Group.Count.ToString()
        ElseIf g.valInt = 2 Then
            lbl51_75.Text = g.Group.Count.ToString()
            lbl76_100.Text = g.Group.Count.ToString()
        End If

End Sub

'' Helper function to determine what group a score is in.
Private Function GetRange(ByVal inp As String) As Integer
    Dim input As Integer = -99
    Integer.TryParse(inp, input)
    If input >= 0 AndAlso input <= 50 Then
        Return 1
    ElseIf input >= 51 AndAlso input <= 75 Then
        Return 2
