'rounded up in the database process for reporting purposes.

you need to open the table tblMonthEndDates as recordset, btw, is this a local table?

dim rsDates as dao.recordset
set rsDates=db.openrecordset("tblMonthEndDates")

do until rsDates.eof    '< this will replace the Array part of your codes above

'your codes here
