Hi

For some reason the following array won't populate 'Name' into A1.  Can someone explain why?

Sub ColumnHeaders()
    Dim myArray As Variant ' Variants can hold any type of data, including arrays
    Dim myCount As Integer
    'myArray = Range("A1:D1").Value
       
    'Fill the variant with array data
    myArray = Array("Name", "Address", "Phone", "Email")
   
    'Empty the array
    With Sheet1
        For myCount = 1 To UBound(myArray)
            .Cells(1, myCount).Value = myArray(myCount)
        Next myCount
    End With
   
End Sub

With Sheet1
        For myCount = 1 To UBound(myArray)
            .Cells(1, myCount).Value = myArray(myCount - 1)
        Next myCount
    End With

The default base for arrays is 0. So when you create the variant array:

    myArray = Array("Name", "Address", "Phone", "Email")

you are creating an array with elements 0 through 3, not 1 through 4.

Also, you can move a single dimension array into a range of cells with one statement:

    Sheet1.Range("A1:D1").Value = Array("Name", "Address", "Phone", "Email")

If you want the default base to be 1 use this:

Option Base 1

at the top of your code module.
