This handy little function will determine if a value is present in an array, and return true or false.

Option Explicit

Public Function IsInArray(FindValue As Variant, arrSearch As Variant) As Boolean
   On Error GoTo LocalError
   If Not IsArray(arrSearch) Then Exit Function
   If Not IsNumeric(FindValue) Then FindValue = UCase(FindValue)
   IsInArray = InStr(1, vbNullChar & Join(arrSearch, vbNullChar) & vbNullChar, _
vbNullChar & FindValue & vbNullChar) > 0
Exit Function
   'Justin (just in case)
End Function


Private Sub Command1_Click()
   Dim x(5) As String
   x(0) = 5
   x(1) = 100
   x(2) = 2000
   x(3) = 11
   x(4) = 7
   x(5) = 1010
   MsgBox IsInArray(10, x)
End Sub
