I learned to program in Pascal and then advanced programing in C/C++ on Unix/Dos machines.  I am now stuck writing a VB program in Excel and I can't find an object or variable that behaves like a structure from C.  I just want a variable that I can use in all my modules and can be organized like this:
variablename.onedimessionalarray_of_title_for_data(0)
variablename.twodimessionalarray_of_data(0,0)
It is basicly an array that is capable of holding different data types in each element including other arrays.

'Type' is VB's version of a structure

It's used as such:
Type tUDT
  Var1 As String
  Var2 As Integer
End Type
Dim UDTVar As tUDT

and then each element would be referenced as:
UDTVar.Var1 = "This is a string"
UDTVar.Var2 = 123

Quick question, can Var1 and Var2 be set as arrays of strings and integers?

Yep.
Type tUDF
  Var1(100) As String
  Var2(50) As Integer
End Type
Dim UDTVar As tUDT
'Or even
Din UDTArray(100) As tUDT
