Excel range to array

Is there a fast way to transfer an Excel range to an array?

Example:
Excel range is E2:E300
Dim person() as string

Thanks,

George

Hi
A range in excel is an array
ie

Dim ary As Range
Set ary = Range("E2:E300" )

Debug.Print ary(0, 1)
Debug.Print ary(1, 1)
Debug.Print ary(2, 1)
Debug.Print ary(3, 1)

gets e1 to e4 values
and so on

Regards
James

James,
Thanks for your reply.

I should have stated the purpose of the array - to populate a control.

Current code:
1. Define the array
dim personArray() as string

2. For-next sub to move values from Excel to the array:
personArray(i) = oXL.Cells(ThisR ow, 1).value
(this sub does the dim preserve to update the array's index.)

3. Move values from array to control.
ComboBoxPerson. Items.AddRange( personArray)
I tried your suggestion (modifying it a bit):

1. Define the range
Dim xrange As Excel.Range
xrange = oXL.Range("E2:E 300")

2. Move values from range to control.
ComboBoxPerson. Items.AddRange( xrange)

I get this vb.net Build error on last line, with xrange highlighted:
Value of type 'Excel.Range' cannot be converted to '1-dimensional array of string'.

Same error and highlight occurs with this:
Dim xrange As Excel.Range
xrange = oXL.Range("E2:E 300")
personArray = xrange

A valid way to say this last line is what I'm looking for.

Thanks,
George

ps.
I have vb.net 2003 and Excel 2000.
The modules have:
Imports System
Imports System.io
Imports Microsoft.Visua lBasic

ps2.
On this reply, I changed the Subject line, adding "- populate control";
not sure how Google handles this.

I tried following the code below from the microsoft article Q306022 to copy an array of data to excel in a single call. I only have a single dimension in my array.

It copies this value to each item in the defined range in Excel. It's as if excel does not recognize that I'm...

Greetings This is one of those Access is not closing Excel problems. The first time through the code works fine. The second time there is a problem. After lots of combinations, I finally determined that if I take out the line that copies the temp array to cells in a worksheet, Access will close the Excel file. If the line is there, Excel remains open and blocks more runs of the same procedure. If I close Access, Excel gets closed. Looks like...
