I have an array of variants which i use for different objects. When I don't need one of the objects any more I need to "unassign" the variant entry which held that object.

I tried using: Set Variant = Empty, but that doesn't work.

What do I do?

If they are holding an object set the object to nothing like this....

      Set Variant = Nothing

This will only work if the variable in that specific variant is an object.
