I believe this would work for Fortran, although only testing with a C DLL:

#If Win32 Then

    Private Declare Function ProcessArray Lib "vb4dll32.dll"(a() As _
        String) As Variant
    Private Declare Function CopyArray Lib "vb4dll32.dll" (a() As _
        String) As Variant

#Else

    Private Declare Function ProcessArray Lib "vb4dll16.dll"(a() As _
        String) As Variant
    Private Declare Function CopyArray Lib "vb4dll16.dll" (a() As _
        String) As Variant

#End If


Private Sub ArrayTest()

    Dim a(4, 5, 6) As String
    Dim v1 As Variant

    a(0, 1, 2) = "Hello!"

    Print VarType(v1)
    v1 = ProcessArray(a())
    Print VarType(v1)

    MsgBox v1(0, 1, 2), vbInformation, "Element Value of Array _
           Returned In Variant - 1"
    MsgBox a(0, 1, 2), vbInformation, "Modified Element Value of _
           Passed-in Array - 1"

    v2 = CopyArray(a())
    Print VarType(v2)

    MsgBox v2(0, 1, 2), vbInformation, "Element Value of Array _
           Returned In Variant - 2"
    MsgBox a(0, 1, 2), vbInformation, "Modified Element Value of _
           Passed-in Array - 2 "

End Sub
