VBScript and Multidimensional arrays

I get the following error when I run the VBscript below …

Error in the script at Line 5 and column 0
Type mismatch
Microsoft VBScript runtime error

The call below to the function scGetValueArray( ), of the MMLCmdObj object, retrieves the second argument as an array of values(strings). However, If I call the function IsArray() over ValArray, it returns TRUE meaning that it does recognize it as an array. Also, if I comment out the functions to retrieve the values of the array elements, the call to Ubound works fine too.


Sub SetInfo
Dim ParamName, ValArray, Upper, Counter, SQL
ParamName = "DIR"
call MMLCmdObj.scGetValueArray(ParamName, ValArray)
MsgBox ValArray(0,0) ''''''''''''''''''''''''''I get the error here
Upper = UBound(ValArray, 2)
For Counter = 0 To Upper
    SQL = "INSERT INTO extension (Type, startDir, endDir) " & vbNewLine
    SQL = SQL & " VALUES('ANA', " & CStr(ValArray(Counter,0)) &", "& CStr(ValArray(Counter,1)) &")"  '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''I get the error here too
    if Not MMLCmdObj.scInsertValues(SQL)Then
      Exit For
    End If
Next
End Sub

Any ideas ????

In the scGetValueArray method of the  MMLCmdObj object, make sure you define the ValArray parameter ByVal As Variant.

Like this:

Public Sub scGetValueArray(ByVal ParamName as Variant, ByVal ValArray As Variant)

Usually, a Type-Mismatch will occur if it is not declared in this fashion...

Your reply lead me to find the correct answer to my problem which was actually in my C++ code.
I had the ValArray.vt defined as VT_ARRAY instead of VT_ARRAY | VT_VARIANT

Thank you
