Hard Code Values to an Array

Hi EE.

I am not great with regular arrays, but I am attempting to create an array that will hold values a.b.c.d.e.f etc. depending on how many columns I have.
I retrieve the number of columns and then assign it to the array, but how do I assign the a,b,c etc. to the array  and how do I pick the values out?
Thanks
Dim cc As Integer = Me.fpGrdGeneric.ActiveSheet.ColumnCount - 1
 Dim arr(cc) As Array = a,b,c,??

Dim Test() As Integer
        Test = New Integer() {1, 3, 5, 7, 9}

        Dim Test1() As String
        Test1 = New String() {"a", "b", "c", "d"}

For a start, you need to declare it as String, as the way you have it is declaring an array of Arrays.

Then you need to fill it like this....

        Dim arr(cc) As String
        For c As Integer = 0 To cc - 1
            arr(c) = Chr(65 + c).ToString
        Next
