Lotus Notes GetItemValue = Type Mismatch using VBScript

Basically I've looked everywhere for this, and my code appears to be correct.
I've tried using:
arrName = fDoc.Getitemvalue("PC_Name")(0)
But that errors with a Type Mismatch

Using:
arrName = fDoc.Getitemvalue("PC_Name")
Does work and puts the data in, but then I try to access it and get type mismatch.

I tried doing:
wscript.echo fUNID(0)
and that works.
But replace it with arrName(0) and I get a type mismatch.

In the variable window, they are both exactly the same, and both contain 1 string value (0)
The data IS there, as I can see in the variable window, that the correct data is showing up under arrName(0)

I've tried Dimming, but as I'm not using option explicit that doesn't matter I don't think.
Any ideas?

Set notessession = CreateObject("Notes.Notessession")

Set notesdb = notessession.GetDatabase("SERVER", "DATABASE.nsf")
 

Set notesView = notesdb.getview("VIEW NAME")

Set fDoc = notesView.getFirstDocument
 

i = 0

Set fDoc = notesView.GetFirstDocument

ReDim fUNID(0)

Do While Not fDoc Is Nothing

	

	ReDim Preserve fUNID(i)

	fUNID(i) = fDoc.UniversalID

						

	arrName = fDoc.Getitemvalue("PC_Name")

         wscript.echo arrName(0)     'ERROR IS HERE
 

	Set fDoc = notesView.GetNextdocument(fDoc)

	i=i+1

Loop

Open in new window

Try this
Do While Not fDoc Is Nothing

	ReDim Preserve fUNID(i)

	fUNID(i) = fDoc.UniversalID

						

	Set arrItem = fDoc.GetFirstItem("LastName")

	arrName = arrItem.Text

         wscript.echo arrName

 

	Set fDoc = notesView.GetNextdocument(fDoc)

	i=i+1

Loop

Open in new window

Or this, converting explicitly to a string-type:
        arrName = fDoc.Getitemvalue("PC_Name")

        wscript.echo CStr(arrName(0))

Sjef, that also gives a type mismatch.  For some reason, VBS has a devil of a time dealing with Notes value arrays. WHether you get them via implicit attributes of the document, getItemValue, or getItem(...).Values, you can assign it, but you can't do anything with it.

Thanks, that link is perfect!
It was certainly weird being able to assign it and see the data, but not do anything with it.
