Adding values in an array

I am relatively new at working with arrays.  I want to add the values in one array to the values in a second array.  Something like this

Dim array1() as double
Dim array2() as Double
Dim array3() as double

array1(0) = 2
array1(1) = 5

array2(0) = 1
array2(1) = 6

this is where the line I don't know how to write would go.

If I were to debug.print array3() I want to see the following

11

Thanks very much in advance.

Something like:
Dim i As Long
For i = LBound(array1) To UBound(array1)
    array3(i) = array1(i) + array2(i)
    Debug.Print "array3(" & i & ") = " & array3(i)
Next i

Open in new window

This works fine for me as well also:
Dim array1(0 To 100) As Double
Dim array2(0 To 100) As Double
Dim array3(0 To 100) As Double

array1(0) = 2
array1(1) = 5

array2(0) = 1
array2(1) = 6

array3(0) = array1(0) + array2(0)
array3(1) = array1(1) + array2(1)

Debug.Print array3(0) & vbCrLf & array3(1)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If upper bound for first array differs from the second:

Private Sub Command11_Click()
    Dim array1() As Double
    Dim array2() As Double
    Dim array3() As Double
   
    ReDim array1(3)
    ReDim array2(5)
    ReDim array3(5)
   
    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 0 To UBound(array1)
        array1(i) = i
        Debug.Print i
    Next
    For i = 0 To UBound(array2)
        array2(i) = i
        Debug.Print i
    Next
    If UBound(array1) >= UBound(array2) Then
        For i = 0 To UBound(array1)
            array3(i) = array1(i)
        Next
        For i = 0 To UBound(array2)
            array3(i) = array1(i) + array2(i)
        Next
    Else
        For i = 0 To UBound(array2)
            array3(i) = array2(i)
        Next

        For i = 0 To UBound(array1)
            array3(i) = array1(i) + array2(i)
        Next
    End If
    For i = 0 To UBound(array3)
        Debug.Print array3(i)
    Next
End Sub

Yeah...I put absolutely no error checking in my snippet; just assumed that all arrays were the same size and had the same lower/upper/bounds.

And now you run into the age old problem of storing derivable data.  There you are with a1, a2, and a3.  Someone changes a value in a1 or a2, but does not update a3 which is the sum - now what?  You have to make sure every time you view the contents of a3, it is in fact re-created.
