    You can (as Sam said) start arrays at any start/end

    The Option Base is for when you do NOT explicitly specify

    So if you can pick your bounds correctly, you can make life easier. You should use LBound and UBound

    Example: working with rows 16 to 32

    Dim A (16 to 32) as Long
    For r = LBound(A) to UBound(A)
        Cells(r,1).Value = 2*Cells(r,2)
    Next r

    or even use enumerations

    Dim D(vbSunday to vbSaturday)

    If you define your own enumerations, it does help readability

    Enum colNames
        FName =12
        LName = 13
        Addr = 14
    End Enum
    Dim N(FName to Addr)

    1. Use [CODE] ....[/CODE ] Tags for readability
    [CODE]PasteYourCodeHere[/CODE ] -- (or paste your code, select it, click [#] button)
    2. Upload an example
    Go Advanced / Attachments - Manage Attachments / Add Files / Select Files / Select the file(s)
    (multiple files can be selected while holding Ctrl key) / Upload Files / Done
    3. Mark the thread as [Solved] when you have an answer
    Thread Tools (on the top right corner, above the first message)
    4. Read the Forum FAQ, especially the part about cross-posting in other forums
