Is this the homework for your study course? Where do you set a value for x?

Yes, it does sound like a homework assignment.
And presenting three askboxes in a row is awkward,
to say the least.

parameters into the first (and only) askbox.
by plus signs". Like this: 1+2+3.

Or if the lesson plan has reached "hta" files,
then just use an hta as a "graphical user interface"
(gui) and present three text boxes for the parameters.
Er wait -- in html they are called input tags.

no study course, it's self study.

the vaule of x is variable.

so if you open the script will appear inputbox and if you enter for example
2 it will follow by 2 inputbox and if enter 3 it follow by 3 inputbox so if
follow by 3 inputbox and i enter in it the following 5, 2 and 3 than i want
msgbox be 5 + 2 + 3 = 10

Here is the code you posted:

S =InputBox
for S = 1 to x
InputBox "(Enter #)"
Next
msgbox "The Total is " & Sum i

Unfortunately it makes no sense. The InputBox function requires at least one
argument - see the detailed description (plus example!) in the help file
probably look like this:
s = InputBox("Please enter a number", "My Calculator")

After you get the InputBox function right, the variable S will reflect the
number you entered. The next line of code should then probably read:

for x = 1 to S
for S = 1 to x

In other words, you had this line back to front.
