Is there any way to get around the 64K limit with Type...End Type?  I have a huge list of strings defined and would like to avoid breaking it down into a billion type statements if possible.  Code will help.

Make the strings variable length (they only take 4 bytes) and then you can have about 16,000 strings. Is that enough?

16,000 would be more than enough.  I actually just tried removing the fixed lengths.  So far no problems, but I'm still adding all the data.  So, no matter how big each string is I shouldn't run into any memory errors right?
