I am trying my first VB project using multidimensional arrays (and i admit i am struggling)

I have figured out about 4 different methods and decided to use the system.collections.arraylist() cause it's simple and thats fits plan of my project.

I am down to this one problem..

(Here is a sniplit of code where i am confused)

            strRegistryArray.Add(aRowArray)
            aRowArray.Clear()

The problem is that i add an array element using the variable aRowArray and then try to clear it after it is added so that i can rebuild it again. (it's part of a loop)

anyway when i do the clear it also clears out the original value from the strRegistryArray.  I now this is a byRef and byValue thing but i just don't know how to get around it.

Thanks for any help!
