Extracting data from scripting dictionary

Hi

I have recently come across the dictionary object in Excel VBA.    The code below (same in the workbook) does a fine job of going through a list of names ignoring all duplicates.
I know that the dictionary contains the information, but I don't know how to extract the contents of the dictionary.  I  would like the transfer the contents of the dictionary to a string array.  

Thank you.



The excel workbook included has one "button" with the following code.

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
    Dim NameList() As Variant
    Dim dict As Object, c As Variant, i As Long, lr As Long
    Set dict = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
    lr = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row

    c = Range("a1:a45" & lr)
    
    For i = 1 To UBound(c, 1)
    dict(c(i, 1)) = 1
    Next i
       
End Sub
