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.

How about asking the user to put all the input
parameters into the first (and only) askbox.
For example "enter your three addends separated
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
script56.chm which you can download from the Microsoft site. It should
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.
