    I need to pass an array of values to a select statement in VB6 but need help with the syntax

    cmnFileGet.CancelError = True
    cmnFileGet.FileName = txtFilePath.Text
    cmnFileGet.Filter = "*.txtDate"

    cmnFileGet.FileName = txtFilePath.Text

    is the line of code that is currently passing a single file to the select statement. I want all files that qualify for the filter "*.txtDate"

    txtDate is a text box the end user fills in. For example I want all files that qualify for "*.7/30" if the end user has entered 7/30 into the text box.

    The syntax in the case statement must somehow cause the program to go back for the next value in the array once all the other code in the case statement is executed.

    Any help will be greatfully appreciated.

    If I understand your question, you would want to do something like this:

    cmnFileGet.Filter = "*." & txtDate.Text

    That would limit the dialog box to files with an extention "7/09" in your example. Again, I'm not sure I understand the question. I appologize if I'm way off here, but let me know if I am...

    As far as the array part of the question goes, if your array was called Dates() where each member of Dates() was a date entered by the user:

    for x = 1 to UBound(Dates)
    Select Case Dates(x)
    case "7/09"
    case "7/10"
    case else
    End Select
    Next x
