I amm getting an overflow on this line of code:

RelayParts(3, i) = sngStartTime + CLng(RelayParts(6, i))    'first skier...time they started

The array is variant because it contains multiple data types.  sngStartTime = 55947 and CLng(RelayParts(6, i)) = 600

What can  I do differently?

Dim x As Long

x = Relayparts(6, i) '600

Relayparts(3, i) = sngStartTime + x   'first skier...time they started

You need, at least, to be aware of the limits of the declared data types  in the arithmetic expression. There are also limits to the value of intermediate calculations.

Firstly, what type is the Relay() declaration?

THat was the mistake.  I accidentally had the array type as integer.  My bad.
