Hi

I declared the following array:  Dim arrIntegers(1000) as integer

It holds a list of arrays that re not in order.

I need to sort the  numbers held in the array into descending order

and then loop through these in that order.

How would I do that?

You can also just use the shared Array.Sort() and Array.Reverse() methods:
        Dim arrIntegers(1000) As Integer

        Array.Sort(arrIntegers)
        Array.Reverse(arrIntegers)

        For i As Integer = 0 To arrIntegers.GetUpperBound(0)
            Debug.Print(i & " = " & arrIntegers(i))
        Next

Open in new window
