Returns a Boolean value indicating whether a variable is an array.


IsArray( varname )

The required varname argument is an identifier specifying a variable.


IsArray returns True if the variable is an array; otherwise, it returns False. IsArray is especially useful with variants containing arrays.

This example uses the IsArray function to check if a variable is an array.

Dim MyArray(1 To 5) As Integer, YourArray, MyCheck    ' Declare array variables.
YourArray = Array(1, 2, 3)    ' Use Array function.
MyCheck = IsArray(MyArray)    ' Returns True.
MyCheck = IsArray(YourArray)    ' Returns True.
