Passing Arrays as Parameters

Sub PassArray()
    'Declare a six-element array
    Dim astrNames(5) As String
    Dim intCounter As Integer

    'Call the FillNames function, passing a reference
    'to the array
    Call FillNames(astrNames)

    'Use a For...Next loop to loop through the
    'elements of the array
    For intCounter = 0 To UBound(astrNames)
        Debug.Print astrNames(intCounter)
    Next intCounter
End Sub
Sub FillNames(varNameList As Variant)
    'Populate the elements of the array
    varNameList(0) = "A"
    varNameList(1) = "B"
    varNameList(2) = "C"
