Arrays declared as structure members cannot be declared with an initial size

An array in a structure is declared with an initial size. You cannot initialize any structure element, and declaring an array size is one form of initialization.

Error ID: BC31043

To correct this error

  1. Define the array in your structure as dynamic (no initial size).

  2. If you require a certain size of array, you can redimension a dynamic array with a ReDim Statement when your code is running. The following example illustrates this.

    Structure demoStruct  
        Public demoArray() As Integer  
    End Structure  
    Sub useStruct()  
        Dim struct As demoStruct  
        ReDim struct.demoArray(9)  
        Struct.demoArray(2) = 777  
    End Sub
