Variables are mainly used to store a piece of information. This could include numbers, letters, expressions, or characters.


To use a variable, you simply come up with a name that isn't a function or command, and then set it to something. In the following example, the variable name is "VName"

VName = "This is the text that VName will contain."
Assigning it to a number:
 VName = 10
Assigning it to an expression:
VName = 10 + 5


Variables are the cornerstones that programs revolve around. You can have an unlimited amount of variables - but be careful when naming not to have a space anywhere in the name, or Windows Scripting Host (The VBS Manager) will treat it as two seperate variables.

Calling a VariableEdit

This is very simple. To call the value of a variable, simply use the variable name. Here's an example:

MsgBox VName

Another example using the If Statement, comparing it to a number...assuming that the value of VName is only a number, not text:

 If VName > 50 Then MsgBox "You've exceeded the limit!"

Remember, if you ever need help, you can ask BusyCityGuy on his talk page.
