Hello Guys,
                  I got a string value "A" in a variant array that shows Variant/String type for the string's values. However,
the functions recieving the array's values compalin of type mismatch. How do convert variant into string???

Thanks,
Serge

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) )
Else
   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...
