vbs script to read a mixed variable file

vbs script to read a mixed variable file

vbs script to read a mixed variable file


I need to read a list of 3 columns where column A & C are strings and column B consists of numbers
They are comma separated as shown below


I tried:
while eof(1)=false
line input#1,T$
while eof(1)=false
input#1, S1,N1,S2

non of these gave me the results I was looking for. Looks like the lines ignore the newline

Any ideas?


RE: vbs script to read a mixed variable file

Hi Katto,
Reading the file like you tried works in VBA (for example in Excel), but not in VBscript.
To read the file in Vbscript use the Scripting.FileSystemObject.
If you need a working example, you can look here: https://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=164948...
