Sean, that function is a vbscript function, not a proprietary IS or MSI
function. You can get more information on vbscript at

I have not been able to find any documentation for IS 7 except for the online help. This software really needs a "how-to" document with lots of examples and overall concepts. Am I the only one who thinks this software is difficult to work with (at least for a novice)? I have read the help files and newsgroup postings but I really don't think this is the most productive way to become proficient with IS. Has anyone taken the IS classes? I think software this expensive should come with better documentation. What are your views?
