Hi all,
  Can anyone tell me how to pass an integer array by reference in vb6? I have a dll written in fortran, and I need to pass an integer array to it by reference. I would really appreciate an example. Thank you.

If the dll is built to receive the array byval, you cannot change it.

Otherwise, you simply pass your array variable.
