Arrays and Array Manipulation
Virtually every type of application, program, and component uses arrays for data storage—regardless of the programming language used. While Visual Basic lets you easily create arrays, it contains no intrinsic methods for most common tasks for working with arrays. You need to write your own subroutines (or take advantage of those written by someone else) for this. For example, commonly, you’ll want to rearrange, or sort, the order of the elements in an array by arranging the elements in ascending order (A–Z, for example) and sometimes in descending order (Z–A).
