Array bounds cannot appear in type specifiers

Array sizes cannot be declared as part of a data type specifier.

Error ID: BC30638

To correct this error

  • Specify the size of the array immediately following the variable name instead of placing the array size after the type, as shown in the following example.

    Dim Array(8) As Integer 
  • Define an array and initialize it with the desired number of elements, as shown in the following example.

    Dim Array2() As Integer = New Integer(8) {}
