I decided to share with you more notepad tricks.....

The first one will show you how old you're going to be after 39 years.

I hope you like them:)

Step 1: Trick Number 1

This trick will show you how old you'll be in 39 years.

1. Open notepad
2. Type this code:

WScript.Echo "Hello!"

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
age = InputBox("Please type your age.")

newage = age + 39
WshShell.Popup "In 39 years, you will be " & newage & "."

3. Go to File - save as and save it like this age ( or something else). vbs
It doesn't matter what will be the name, but it have to end with .vbs

4. That's it!!!

NOTE: You can change 39 with other number if you want. But don't forget to change it in both places!!!

Step 2: Trick Number 2

This trick will show you in which year you'll be 50. You have to type only your birth year.

1. Open notepad
2. Type this code:

WScript.Echo "Hello!"

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
birthdate = InputBox("Please type your birth year only.")

newage = birthdate + 50
WshShell.Popup "In " & newage & " you'll be 50."

3. Go to File - save as and save it years. vbs
Like I said before it doesn't matter the name, but it must end with .vbs

Step 3: The End

This codes will not harm your computer:)

mmmkay,I read a couple tutorials on VBS and i decided to try to write something of my own. I'm having problems. It says the "Next" at the end is unexpected. I have the For at the begining, so why is this happening?

For a=1 to 3
dim b
if b=1 then
if b=2 then
msgbox"How are you?"
if b=3 then
msgbox"That's great"

"I decided to share with you more notepad tricks....." You are the only person to say that they were jokes. Try to read more carefully.

For anyone who cares/is interested, you can convert your .vbs 'creations' into .exe by going here and getting a copy of VbsToExe:

Sorry, I've only been able to find the CMD utility, but the syntax is pretty straight-forward.

These aren't notepad tricks. It's Windows Scripting (VBScript). You can do this in any text editor. You should change the title to something referring to VBScript

I changed it.
