Hi

I have a VB DLL and in that I have a function called savedata(InputArr as variant) as integer

I am doing some manipulations of the array elements there and after that I have to insert the data in to the database.

I am populating that Array in an ASP page. I want to pass the entire array from ASP page to the VB DLL. The code in ASP page looks like this:

dim objhelper
set objHelper=server.CreateObject("HelperObject.Helper")

if isobject(objhelper) then

 if objhelper.SaveData(DLLARR) = -1 then
      
            Response.Write("fail")
      else
            Response.Write("Success")
      end if      
 end if

It is creating the object. But it is giving an error like

Invalid procedure call or argument error '800a0005'
Invalid procedure call or argument

/tradecom/members/newaccount/create_fldsArray.asp, line 88


It is giving error in yh eline "if objhelper.SaveData(DLLARR) = -1 then".

DLLARR is my array.


Hope somebody can give me some hints.

Thanks
RR

ID: Q217114,Q174576,Q244012 all arrays to the VB must be Variant by type and passed by reference.
so you would declare the helperobject procedure as:
Public Function savedata(ByRef InputArr as variant) as integer.
