Hi,
Im trying to tidy up some code i have, by creating some public functions etc..

Through out my code i have lots of different Subs, many of which have the same 3 arrays in them:

Add0Array = Array("", "0", "00", "000", "0000", "00000")
DisabledArray = Array("10202", "20202", "514", "40200", "80202", "222") 'array to hold UAC values of disabled users
DomainArray = Array("172.20.xxx.xx", "172.20.xx.xx")

I want to declare these publicly like a few of my other key variables, however i cant seem to work out how?

Option Explicit
 
Public StrDomain As String
Public ADG As String
 
Public objConnection As New ADODB.Connection
Public objCommand As New ADODB.Command
Public objRecordset As New ADODB.Recordset
 
Public JPStart As New SpeedUp
Public JPEnd As New SpeedUp
Public JPboarders As New AddBoarders
 
Public DisabledArray()
Public Add0Array()
Public DomainArray()
 
Add0Array = Array("", "0", "00", "000", "0000", "00000")
DisabledArray = Array("10202", "20202", "514", "40200", "80202", "222") 'array to hold UAC values of disabled users
DomainArray = Array("172.20.xx.xx", "172.20.xx.xxx")

You can declare it as Public inside a module and fill the arrays when the application load

Hi,
thanks for the reply, but im new to this all ......

 can i not just define the values of the array once, along with all my other public variables, rather then within each of the Subs?

If you want to acess the arrays in all project you can do this:
Public Class Form1
 
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        MsgBox(Add0Array(0).ToString)
    End Sub
 
End Class
 
 
Module myVariables
 
    Public DisabledArray() As String = {"", "0", "00", "000", "0000", "00000"}
    Public Add0Array() As String = {"10202", "20202", "514", "40200", "80202", "222"}
    Public DomainArray() As String = {"172.20.xx.xx", "172.20.xx.xxx"}
 
End Module

You have choose Microsoft Visual Basic.Net area :)
In the VBE (ALT+F11) insert a new module. In that module declare the public variables
' MODULE
Option Explicit

Public DisabledArray()
Public Add0Array()
Public DomainArray()

Then, in thisWorkBook, fill the arrays

Option Explicit

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
    Add0Array = Array(" ", "0", "00", "000", "0000", "00000")
    DisabledArray = Array("10202", "20202", "514", "40200", "80202", "222") 'array to hold UAC values of disabled users
    DomainArray = Array("172.20.xx.xx", "172.20.xx.xxx")
End Sub
 
After this you can use in everywhere.
