I want to turn this array...

a(1) = "foo"
a(2) = "bar"

...into this array...

a(1,1) = "foo"
a(1,2) = "bar"

...using Redim Preserve.  I am sure it's possible.  But I can't work out the syntax.

a(0,0) = "foo"
a(0,1) = "bar"

would also be fine.

Point is I want to figure out how to use Redim.

Mike,
To ecpand on that:

You would have to create a second array, Redim that with the wanted number of dimensions and fill it from the first.

Also, when you Redim a multi-dimensional array, you can only change the size of the last dimension,
