MS Excel - Array MATCH type mismatch

Continuation of prior question -  "elegant" solution is generating at type mismatch on the match function of an array item within an array.  The goal is to build an new array for a report extracting the necessary data from various existing arrays in various column locations.  Also, the column that is being 'matched' is the first column in each of the arrays.

For x = 1 To RptRows
      ' (error is generated here)
      ID_Fnd = Application.Match(ReportArray(x, 1), Application.Index(ProdArray, , 1), 0)
      ReportArray(x, 7) = ProdArray(ID_Fnd, 2)
Next x

Watch is showing the following:
   ReportArray(x,1) -  variant/long
   Application.Index(ProdArray, , 1) -  variant/variant

Could you please supply some surround code?
I'm curious to see how ReportArray and ProdArray are defined?
Would be great if you can attach a sample spreadsheet with the code & data where the problem occurs.

I don't think the Application.Index function works on non Variant arrays. This should work:

    Dim x As Long
    Dim y As Long

    For x = 1 To RptRows
        For y = LBound(ProdArray, 1) To UBound(ProdArray, 1)
            If ProdArray(y, 1) = ReportArray(x, 1) Then
                ReportArray(x, 7) = ProdArray(y, 2)
                Exit For
            End If
        Next y
    Next x

I will try this and get back to you.

From a resource and speed perspective - rather than looping through to find ReportArray(x,1) value for all the rows,  would it make more sense to create a MatchArray with only the ID in the identical sequence as the ProdArray and still use the Match (& Index) as was first suggested?

    ReDim ProdArray(xRows, 2)
    Dim MatchArray(xRows)
    Range("A1").Select
    For x = 1 To SchCPRows
        ProdArray(x, 1) = ActiveCell.Value
        MatchArray(x) = Activecell.value
        ProdArray(x, 2) = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Value
        ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
    Next x

    Dim ID_Fnd%
    For x = 1 To xRows
        ID_Fnd = Application.Match(ReportArray(x, 1), MatchArray, 0)
        ReportArray(x, 7) = ProdArray(ID_Fnd, 2)
    Next x

You could do it that way. But looping through a few hundred elements of an array is pretty fast.
