you should probably check just to be sure:

Dim x as integer
Dim StrResult As String
Dim VarArray() As Variant
If isAlphaNumeric( VarArray(x) ) then
   StrResult = CStr( VarArray(x) )
   StrResult = vbNullString
End If

I think u need to loop through the variant and for each item in a variant (i.e. variant_array_name(0), variant_array_name(1),.....) use function cstr() to convert it to string...
