That is because of the _
sign to break into a new line. -- You'll need to have alot on one line; there are limitations with the IDE.

i'm not sure... is this what you want?

instead of:
    Array("@UserID", adInteger, 4, CInt(varUserID)), _
    Array("@ContactID", adInteger, 4, CInt(varContactID)), _
    Array("@FirstName", adChar, 45, ParamField(varFirstName, False)), _
    ....
    ....

use this:


    Array("@UserID", adInteger, 4, CInt(varUserID), _
          "@ContactID", adInteger, 4, CInt(varContactID), _
          "@FirstName", adChar, 45, ParamField(varFirstName, False), _
           ....
           ....

I can not have in different line or the next funcion will not be able to parce the array. Also doing this:
Array("@UserID", adInteger, 4, CInt(varUserID), _
         "@ContactID", adInteger, 4, CInt(varContactID), _
         "@FirstName", adChar, 45, ParamField(varFirstName, False), _
         
Will give me the same error.

It has nothing to do with arrays. It's just that you can't combine too many lines within a function call.

The last end in comma because I can not add any more line.

:-) Maybe his editor is limited to 80 characters per line, and he cannot put 2 Array statements on one line.

msilva, don't use fortran editor  ;-)

i still don't understand what the problem is... i don't see any array that is to long...

anyway, do you know tha you can call a SP with the command object, which allows you to assign the paramters line by line before you actually call execute...

Sample how to reduce number of line continuations from 4 to 1:

x = Array(lalla), _
 Array(lalla), _
 Array(lalla), _
 Array(lalla), _
 Array(lalla)

x = Array(lalla), Array(lalla), Array(lalla), _
 Array(lalla), Array(lalla)

Yes your are correct, Robbert made a very usufull commemt.
Is not a array issue but a combination of too many lines.
