    Hi
    Here's VB 6. forum.

    I see your source code is vb .Net

    Well in Vb6 you might go this way:
    Code:
      dim st$
      st=Trim$(TextBox.Text) 'remove leading and trailing blaks in one go
      Dim a$()
      a = Split(st, " ") 'split the text at every blank
      dim words&#37;
      words = UBound(a)+1 'number of words is the number of elements resulting from the split

    Yes. A() is the array. You'd loop AFTER splitting into the array. Give it a try.

    Words is the UPPER BOUND of the array, so you'd loop from 0 to Max-1

    Why would you use a for loop and if/then/else constructs, when the Split() functions delivers a nice array with all the single words of a text?
    You can afterwards, as David explained, use any kind of loop to walk through the elements of the array.
