Since my array recordsets are access frequently, Can both control arrays and DAO recordsets be stored as .dlls ?

Yep, as long as they are Activex DLLs.

You can store recordset information in a dll.  I believe you have to pass recordsets to/from automation servers as variant data types, so you will have to assign your recordset to a variant data type before you transfer, and re-assign to recordset once the target receives it.  You have to be careful if you are creating a server that will be available to multiple clients, as you have the issue of each client creating a separate instance of the dll.  If you are using VB, look into the following topic in Books On-line:
1. ActiveX components (read the whole chapter)
2. COM

I'm not so sure about control arrays, however.

If the ActivexDLL is going to be used by VB exclusively, you can pass recordset types.
