This should be simple, but line 1050 is reporting error 9, subscript out of bounds.

Laugh at me if you must ... but where is my error?

Thanks!
Dim marBarControlsEnabled() As Boolean 
 

1040     If Not IsArray(marBarControlsEnabled) Then GoSub InitArray

1050     If UBound(marBarControlsEnabled, 1) < CommandBars1.Count Then GoSub InitArray
 

... now use the array
 

1200 InitArray:

    Dim iMaxBar As Integer, iMaxControl As Integer

'code to figure out the maxima ...

    

1270     ReDim Preserve marBarControlsEnabled(iMaxBar, iMaxControl)

    

1280     Return

How is your array declared ? marBarControlsEnabled ?

If it's a one-dimension array, try this: If UBound(marBarControlsEnabled, 0)

you can only change 1 (the last) dimension of an array in VB6.

Dim marBarControlsEnabled() As Boolean
is a 1-dimension array, so you cannot do this:
ReDim Preserve marBarControlsEnabled(iMaxBar, iMaxControl)

I need it to be 2-dimensional.

But if I start with

Dim marBarControlsEnabled(2,200) As Boolean

the Redim preserve won't compile.  It's already been dimensioned.

you will need some other method than array.

You can only ReDim an array whose dimensions are not defined.

Dim marBarControlsEnabled() As Boolean

Did you initially create the array with any dimensions?
It is possible to declare an array without specifying the dimensions.  If this is what you have done, then attempting to get a UBound on an undimensional array is going to error out.

A trick that I have done before to create a legal array, but FLAG it as "uninitiallized" is to dimensionalize it with -1.  For example, if you have a ONE dimensional array, I declare it like this...

Dim MyArray(-1 to -1) as Integer

Then I can test the array for initilization with UBound...

if UBound( MyArray, 1 ) < 0 then
   ReDim MyArray(1 to Max)
else
  ReDim Preserve MyArray(1 to Max)

The concept can be extended to multi-dimensions, just start with each diminsion from -1 to -1.
