I'm trying to declare an array whose size is based on other arrays, but get an error, as listed in question title. Can anyone shed light on this? Here's the code:

first array declared, such as:
Dim CountryArray
CountryArray = Array("Australia","USA","England","Iraq","Istambul","Yugoslavia")

Here's the one I get the error with:
Dim MDPArray(((UBound(CountryArray)+1)*3)-1,13)

TIA

Use ReDim instead of Dim, you can't dynamically set an array that way.
