you can simply assign it to a string variable.

dim bytArray() as byte
dim strData as string

'i assume that the bytArray variable is actually filled with data...

strData = bytArray

It depends on what is in your byte array:

Private Sub Form_Click()
    Dim bytArray() As Byte
    Dim strData As String
   
    strData = "AAA"
    bytArray = StrConv(strData, vbFromUnicode)
    MsgBox "UBound(bytArray) = " & UBound(bytArray)
    strData = StrConv(bytArray, vbUnicode)
    MsgBox strData
   
    strData = "AAA"
    bytArray = strData
    MsgBox "UBound(bytArray) = " & UBound(bytArray)
    strData = bytArray
    MsgBox strData
End Sub
