Just pass the whole array:

Private Sub SomeThing(MyArray() as integer,...)

Dim i as Long
For i = Lbound(MyArray) to Ubound(MyArray)
'Do something with MyArray(i) eg....
debug.print MyArray(i)
Next i

Use ParamArray

Public Sub test(ParamArray Params())
Dim i As Integer
For i = LBound(Params) To UBound(Params)
Debug.Print Params(i)
Next
End Sub

Call test("a", "b", "c", "d")
End Sub

Call it like this

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Dim d() As Integer
ReDim d(1 To 10)
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 To 10
d(i) = i * 2
Next i
SomeThing d
End Sub

Private Sub SomeThing(MyArray() As Integer)

Dim i As Long
For i = LBound(MyArray) To UBound(MyArray)
Debug.Print MyArray(i)
Next i

End Sub
