Can the starting index be changed from 0 to 1 in arrays?

I'm using Visual Studio 2012.  I know in previous versions that there was an "Option Base 1" command that would be inserted in a Module file. I believe the reason for this was so you could loop thru an array starting at indice 1 rather than 0. I've tried doing this with VS 2012 and it's not recognized. So my question is...is it still possible to start a For Loop using 1 as the starting indice rather than 0? If so, how is it done?

Thanks!

Hi BlakeMcKenna;

Array's always start at index zero. The only way I can think of start an array at index 1 rather than index zero is just not use the first element of the array.
