To those who helped yesterday,again, thanks.

I have managed to resolve most of my problems, however, i have a new issue.

VB seemsto think that the names of my arrays are "ambiguous", WHY?

In the optionexplict ive defined my array as spd(n,n)

Vb doesnt like this and i don`t know why!

Have you defined n?

'Option Explicit' means you must explictly define every variable with a type. If you merely say a(n,n) that's not explicit.

You first need 'Dim n as integer'.

Typically you can only dimension an array to either values (i.e. 4) or constants. If you have n defined as dim n as integer, it will (in my experience) kick the variable out. If you need to have it change size look at the redim function. Hope this helps

An "ambiguous name detected" error is caused by a sub, function, or some other variable or array having the same name as the one you are currently trying to define.
