Thanks Mr Atrax.<BR>I was able to find a way to access the indivdual elements of a Byte array...thought I could share the knowledge.<BR>ASCB(MIDB(arr,i,1) equivalent to saying arr(i) where arr is a byte array.<BR>Note:<BR>Though Byte array cannot be explicitly declared,VBScript recognises a byte array when it recieves the same from outside( for example from an ocx control)<BR>
