Hi.

I have a dynamic array, and would like to pass it to a sub or function, how can I do so?
sub main()
dim array() as string

redim array(1 to 10)

call subroutine1(array)
end sub


public sub subroutine1(newarray() as string)

end sub

This doesnt work!


Thanks for helping me out.

Just like you started it (notice that I have changed your array variable name):

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim MyArray() As String
Dim i As Integer

    ReDim MyArray(1 To 10)
    For i = 1 To 10
        MyArray(i) = i
    Next i
   
    Call subroutine1(MyArray)
End Sub


Public Sub subroutine1(newarray() As String)
Dim i As Integer

    For i = LBound(newarray) To UBound(newarray)
        Debug.Print newarray(i)
    Next i
End Sub

it should work fine the way it is, are you actually calling it array() in your program?  Because that's a reserved word, if you are try changing the name.

Just a big mistake on my part!  I had it right on here, but in my actual code I left out the "Call" keyword.

So stupid!

Apparently without the "Call" keyword, it won't work.

Anyone know why?  I thought leaving Call out was perfectly fine.

Thanks

you may omit the Call but in this case, omit the parentheses too.
