hi mad3654,
here is the code -

Dim a(6) As Variant
    Dim i As Integer
   
    a(0) = "JIM"
    a(1) = "100"
    a(2) = "C"
    a(3) = "TIM"
    a(4) = "200"
    a(5) = "D"
   
    Open "C:\ALOKTEMP\TESTFILE" For Output As #1
    i = 0
    Print #1, "Name Cost Code"
    While i < UBound(a)
        Print #1, a(i); "   "; a(i + 1); "   "; a(i + 2)
        i = i + 3
    Wend

mad3654 ,
Method 1
========
Dim I%, J%
Dim X(0 TO 6) As String
Dim Y(0 To 1, 0 To 1, 0 To 1) As String
For I = 0 To 5 Step 3
  J = J + 1
  X(J, 0, 0) = Y(I)
  X(J, 0, 1) = Y(I + 1)
  X(J, 1, 0) = Y(I + 2)
Next I

Method 2
========
Type TYPE_X
 strName As String
 sglCost As Single
 strCode As String
End Type

Dim Item(0 To 1) As TYPE_X

For I = 0 To 5 Step 3
  J = J + 1
  With Item(J)
    .strName = X(I)
    .sglCost = X(I + 1)
    .strCode = X(I + 2)
  End With
Next I

I prefer method 2 since you are not dealing with multi-dim arrays.

Hope this answers your question. If so, please convert this as an answer.

Please let me know.

Cheers,
Ravi
