     A little project to help explain how to read SafeArray structures just from the pointer. The project shows how you can determine if the array contains longs, dates, variants, etc, the number of dimensions, and more. Additionally, the code does not use VarPtrArray API to get the SafeArray address - neat trick. This is not groundbreaking code, but would be of interest to those that like the behind the scenes stuff. Included are "how to's" on creating your own and using them.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
