Public Function cleanArray(varArray() As Variant) As Variant()
  Dim tempArray() As Variant
  Dim oldIndex As Integer
  Dim newIndex As Integer
  ReDim tempArray(LBound(varArray) To UBound(varArray))
  For oldIndex = LBound(varArray) To UBound(varArray)
   If Not Trim(varArray(oldIndex) & " ") = "" Then
     tempArray(newIndex) = varArray(oldIndex)
     newIndex = newIndex + 1
   End If
 Next oldIndex
 ReDim Preserve tempArray(LBound(varArray) To newIndex - 1)
