hi,
I developed a component in ATL which has a method which accepts no in-parameters but gives an out-parameter as an array.I have used a safearray as an out parameter,but in my client(in vb) i give a variant array to be filled up,this gives an error.I'll give the code also

dim obj as mylib.mycomponent
dim arr()as variant
set obj = createobject("progid")
call obj.mymethod(arr())
        Error occurs in the above statment
how will i solve this problem????

A variant can be a safearray. So most likely you change the code to the following.

dim obj as mylib.mycomponent
dim arr as variant
set obj = createobject("progid")
call obj.mymethod(arr)
