Index was outside the bounds of the array C#.net

I am getting an Index was outside the bounds of the array.  I am not sure why this error is occurring.  All I am trying to do is loop through the contents of a grid and pick up the SSN field from each row.  If there are 3 rows, I should have 3 records in my array for ssn.  If there are 100 rows I should have 100 records in my array data.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

ContainerGridRecordCollection gridRows = WebHierarchicalDataGrid1.GridView.Rows;

            int rowsCount = gridRows.Count;

            int columnsCount = WebHierarchicalDataGrid1.GridView.Columns.Count;

            for (int r = 0; r < rowsCount; r++)

                for (int c = 0; c < columnsCount; c++)

                    string[] ssnArray = new string[] { };

                    String cellValue = gridRows[r].Items[1].Value.ToString();

                    ssnArray[r] = cellValue;

                }    <------------------ Error Occurs Here

you do have 100 elements in the array, 0 to 99, so you have to subtract 1 when accessing the array elements, ie (r-1) in your code

I tried that but it did not work.  Here is the screen shot.

You have two problems:

First, you have declared the array ssnArray local to to the inner-most for loop. It won't save any values between iterations. You need to widen the scope of this variable.

Second, you declared this same array with no space. You need to tell the compiler how many elements you expect to have in the array. It should be the same size as the number of rows, so:

 string[] ssnArray = new string[rowsCount];

When I say "widen the scope" of the variable, it really needs to be declared outside of all of the loops, or at least the one that loops over the rows.

Thank you.  That makes complete sense.  It is nice to hear from you again.
