VBA - Excel Union Method: Setting Dynamic range

Hi,

I'm stuck trying to figure out how to use the union method on a dynamic range array.
I have an range array for a number of banks which changes from period over period. Instead of using

Set rngUnion = Union(rngBank(1), rngBank(2), rngBank(3), etc)

is there a way to set the rngUnion to the bounds of the array?

Unless there's a Set Preserve, I can't think of a loop for this. Thanks guys!

For n = Lbound(rngbank) to ubound(rngbank)
if rngunion is nothing then
   set rngunion = rngbank(n)
else
   set rngunion = union(rngunion, rngbank(n))
End if
next n

for example.

How about this:
If UBound(rngBank) = 1 Then
    Set rngUnion = rngBank(1)
Else 
    Set rngUnion = Union(rngBank(1), rngBank(2))
    For Counter = 3 To UBound(rngBank)
        Set rngUnion = Union(rngUnion, rngBank(Counter))
    Next
End If

quick question guys, is it possible to use the worksheetfunction.rank or application evaluate and rank for a range that's been unioned? I'm getting errors on both attempts and wonder if its possible. Thanks.
