Initializing structure variables

Hello!
I have a structure:
    Public Structure geardrive
        Public name As String
        Public gearaxis As Integer
        Public axison As Boolean
        Public speed As Double
        Public target As Double
    End Structure
and I initialize:
        Dim planets() As geardrive

The help files say I can initialize the variables on the same line, like this:
        planets().name = {"Mercury", "Venus", "Earth", "Mars", "Jupiter", "Saturn", "Uranus", "Neptune"}

but it give me an error under the parentheses: number of indeces is less than number of dimensions

and an error under the first bracket: Expression expected.

If I do it individually, it works: planets(0).name = "mercury"

What am I doing wrong in the same line version?  

Thanks,
Joy

You can't do that and there is no convenient way to do what you want. Each member of the record and each record has to be set individually.
