    The safe array api is evil and cumbersome. :-(

    I agree. I set the priority down to a 3 (set it how you think it should be). It isn't very often that you really need to create a variant array of Decimals, and it is far more common that you create an array of Variant that contains some Decimals. Or I8s. Not saying it shouldn't be done at some point in the future, but there are probably better things to work on at the moment. :-)

    Take your time. :-)

    And by the way, the whole COM API is evil and cumbersome to a point. That is why it is so nice that Jacob exists. :-)
