Thanks for the reply Tom, here is some code to show what I am  trying to do:-

I set a scratch variable on my admin_view page, this works just fine and I can 
display the varible on the screen ok, so I know its been set.

[set myname]
        my $myname = q{[loop-data transactions fname] [loop-data transactions 
        $myname =~ s/(\S+)/\L\u$1/g;    # first to upper

[scratch myname] - Display on screen ok!

Now I have my scratch variable (myname) I am trying to use its value (text 
string) in some vbscript.

I am trying to set my vb variable (vbname) to be equal to the value of the 
scratch variable (myname), I thought this would work:

<script language="vbscript">
dim vbname
vbname = "[scratch myname]"
