vba 2010 excel

I'am populating a listbox via an array:
Arr = objMyRecordset.GetRows
       objMyRecordset.MoveFirst

With UserForm2.ListBox1
.Clear
.Column = Arr
.ColumnCount = 36
'.RowSource = Arr
        .ListIndex = -1
End With


I'AM not getting all the columns to show in the listbox?

so i tried setting the rowsource to "Arr"

But keep getting errors .?


Thanksd

Try using List and transposing the array.
With UserForm2.ListBox1
    .ColumnCount = objMyRecordset.Fields.Count
    .List = Application.Transpose(Arr)
End With

Any particular error?

Does your recordset have any null fields?

How many records are in it?

I'am using a temp variable to see if the arr is getting this value .
Dim strb As String

strb = objMyRecordset.Fields(15)
strb = strb

and it clearly is...
but once the array is populated it does not show in the listbox ?

I think the problem might be the nulls.

Try rewriting your query so that they are replaced with blanks, or whatever is appropriate.

Do you mean other places where you are populating listboxes with arrays that have null values?
