Re: SELECTing Records Into an Array Variable ???

P: n/a
Now your question makes a lot more sense. It sounds like you want to be
able to drag a group of records - say - from a subform and drop it into
some control for further processing. This kind of functionality would
definitely be convenient.

A guy who is a big time authnor of Access books has published a few
articles describing techniques for dragging and dropping data - using
VBA but required API code. I think you could drag data from one listbox
to another. Can't remember the article(s) exactly. But to drag records
from a subform to another subform for further processing - hmmm - you
could highlight records in a subform and have a context menu to copy the
selected records - but dragging - may be a little more challenging in
VBA than I would say it is worth the effort for. VB.Net could handle
something like that quite a bit more easily - it has a lot more builtin
classes and functionality so you don't have to fiddle with all kinds of
API code.

If this dragging of records is the functionality you are looking for -
Access may not be the easiest option (if it is even possible in Access).
I would say - as far as the Microsoft family of technologies goes - this
kind of functionality could be more easily achieved in the .Net
environment - C#, VB.net.
