    Looping through text boxes on a form

    I have a form with 10 text boxes, names Server1 through Server10

    I would like to do something like:

    for loop = 1 to 10
    if ("server" & loop).TEXT = "something" do something
    next

    I cannot get this to work. I'm using VBA on a form in Word2003.

    Any help is appreciated.

    create the text boxes in an array (set the name to the same, but use the index property).

    So

    Code:
    for i = 0 to 9
        if server(i).text = "something"
        then
            server(i).text = "something else"
        end if
    next i

    VBA does not support control arrays.

    Here is a good workaround:
