The easiest way is to put it on a picturebox, and use SavePicture to save it to disk. You can also go to www.wotsit.org, and get the BMP file specifications. You can probobly find some source code as well, but it will be for C

Create a new form with one picturebox and one commandbutton, and test this:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.ScaleMode = vbPixels
    Picture1.ScaleMode = vbPixels
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim c As Long
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim j As Integer
   
    Picture1.Visible = False
   
    For i = 0 To Picture1.Width
        For j = 0 To Picture1.Height
            'for your pb change next line to: c = YourTab(i,j)
            c = Rnd * 256
            Picture1.PSet (i, j), RGB(c, c, c)
        Next
    Next
   
    SavePicture Picture1.Image, "theFile.bmp"
End Sub
