Hi all. First post - hoping someone here has already run into this issue.


I am a pretty decent coder with Excel. I am taking a programming class and it requires us to use the Visual Logic programs to create flowcharts of code. I am running into a snag. I have built the flowchart program to use the console to accept user input to fill in the data of an array. However, the thing crashes if the user just hits "enter" twice, essentially skipping entry.



In Excel, I would do something like


If Answer(5) = "" then Answer(5) = 0



What's the equivalent of "" in Visual Basic? It isn't 0, it isn't "", it isn't null...


This is me tearing my hair out.


Please help!

You have to test for the proper Ascii code.  If the entry box is coded to accept any characters then you would be best to test for Ascii Strings.  See here for more info and sample code.
