Help with my array...

I seem to get hung up on arrays...

First of all, I have a label, when clicked, shows a date control (vbmodal).
Once the date is chosen, I want the month, day & year seperated.

In my click event, I currently have
        Dim intTemp() As Integer
        frmDate.Show vbModal
        ReDim intTemp(UBound(Split(dateClick, "/")))

Now, I have the 3 elements in my intTemp array, but I can't assign anything to them the way I would like.

Btw, I know the 'easy' answer is "declare intTemp as a variant", but I don't really want to go that route if unnecessary...

Just a thought:

if you change
Dim intTemp() As Integer
to
Dim sTemp() As String

and change
ReDim intTemp(UBound(Split(dateClick, "/")))
to
sTemp = Split(dateClick, "/")

then sTemp(0) sTemp(1) and sTemp(2) would contain the 3 date parts.

If you later need then as ints, then use CInt(sTemp(0))

The answer you don't want:

    Dim intTemp As Variant
    frmDate.Show vbModal
    intTemp = Split(dateClick, "/"))
    Debug.Print "Month = " & intTemp(0)
    Debug.Print "Day = " & intTemp(1)
    Debug.Print "Year = " & intTemp(2)

If you really want an array of Integer then:

    Dim intTemp(2) As Integer
    Dim strTemp As Variant
    frmDate.Show vbModal
    strTemp = Split(dateClick, "/"))
    intTemp(0) = CInt(strTemp(0))
    intTemp(1) = CInt(strTemp(1))
    intTemp(2) = CInt(strTemp(2))
