Recognizing variables

Question:
I have two varibles, one containing the name of another varible, and one containing a string. How can can I set the varible that’s name is contained in the first varible to the value contained in the second?

Answer:
There’s not a built-in way to do this. You would have to determine what variable name you have in the string (using an If/Then or Select/Case) and then set the variable manually.

In VB 6, there is a function called CallByName that offers limited functionality of this sort when used with objects. In your case, CallByName wouldn’t be appropriate.
