easiest ways are to create a csv string and parse it in the SP or to create a temp table in VB populate it and access it in the SP.

Check out the passing of a CSV to a stored procedure instead. I think you can then convert this csv into an array within the SP, but you won't be able to pass a variant type to an SP.

Thanks - I expected that a delimited string would the way to go but needed a quick confirmation with, ideally, some code.

The link you provided did just the trick
