I am trying to copy a csv file to a vb array with the code below.  However this csv file has over 180,000 rows of data and I get an overflow error.  How can I copy the file to an array?
Open App.Path & "\test.csv" For Input As #1

   Input #1, numRows, numCols, col1Text, col2Text

   ReDim DJData(numRows, numCols) As Double


   For i = 1 To numRows

      Input #1, DJData(i, 1), DJData(i, 2)

   Next i


   Close #1

What are col1Text, col2Text?  Are col1Text, col2Text only on the first row?

Do you have just two columns?  If so, why do you need numCols?

Are all the data in second through the last record numeric data?

Dim i As Long

Dim j As Long

Dim DJData() As Double

   Open App.Path & "\test.csv" For Input As #1

   Input #1, numRows, numCols, col1Text, col2Text

   ReDim DJData(1 To numRows, 1 To numCols)


   For i = 1 To numRows

      For j = 1 To numCols

         Input #1, DJData(i, j)

      Next j

   Next i


   Close #1
