Hi Gerald, wellcome...

Just for another choice
If you want to populate value in comma delimited string, use function GETWORDCOUNT() and GETWORDNUM()
Check in vfp help how to use it.

Ex: in form Init method

cStateStr = "Ak,Al,Ca,Co"
nStateCnt = MAX(GETWORDCOUNT(cStateStr, ","), 1)

thisform.AddProperty("aStates[1]")
DIMENSION thisform.aStates[nStateCnt]

FOR i = 1 to nStateCnt
  thisform.aStates[i] = GETWORDNUM(2, cStateStr, ",")
ENDFOR
