Got me stumped too. Dancing outta my crease. *laugh* I've already tried vartype and typename to no avail. Even tried populating the array with something else, ie arrYes(0) = "zzzz" Then running the Filter and checking if it was still "zzzz" Maybe need to look at it from another angle. What happens to the array when Filter returns no matching values?
