Hi
In the following function I wanted to find out more about the part
ByVal ParamArray ColumnFields As String()
I have always parsed in single variables. How does this work

    Public Function PivotData(ByVal RowField As String, ByVal DataField As String, ByVal Aggregate As AggregateFunction, ByVal ParamArray ColumnFields As String()) As DataTable
        Dim dt As New DataTable()

Loosely based on the example here you could do something like this:
    Sub Main()
        '...

        PivotData("xxx", "yyy", func) ' the 'For Each' in PivotData() will not run

        PivotData("xxx", "yyy", func, "abc", "def") ' the 'For Each' will run twice, once for each of the arguments that follow the 3 fixed arguments

        '...
    End Sub

    Public Function PivotData(ByVal RowField As String, ByVal DataField As String, ByVal Aggregate As AggregateFunction, ByVal ParamArray ColumnFields As String()) As DataTable
        Dim dt As New DataTable()
        For Each ColumnField As String In ColumnFields
            dt.Columns.Add(ColumnField)
        Next
        Return dt
    End Function
