How do I use arrays in VBA to cut a massive amount of data from one sheet to the next

Hi
I need to loop through a large amount of data in one sheet and cut and paste a subset of it into another sheet.  Currently I'm using a For Next loop to cut and paste individual rows of data, but it's very slow.
I would like to either copy all rows in one go to an array, and then paste it to the new sheet, or else copy to virtual memory, if that's at all possible.
Regards
JL

How about filtering the data on the original sheet, and copying the filtered range only to a new sheet?

Adding a template workbook would probably improve the quality of the input you will get.

Dim arr As Variant

    arr = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:D5")
    Sheets(2).Range("a1:d5") = arr

Or whatever range you want.  Be warned the array has two dimensions as row then column.

To give an example of an iterating loop see the snippet

I have used blocks of 40 datums but whilst not infinite much greater blocks can be used

Dim arr As Variant
Dim rng As Range
Dim lngRow As Long

    For lngRow = 0 To 100 Step 10
        Set rng = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A" & lngRow + 1 & ":D" & lngRow + 10)
        Debug.Print rng.Address
        arr = rng
        Sheets(2).Range(rng.Address).Formula = arr
    Next
