While working with String Arrays, the most common error we come across will be :
 
"Value of type 'String' cannot be converted to '1-dimensional array of String'."
 
As in a hurry we forget that we are dealing with arrays.
 
Usually we do declare an array as
 
Dim arr as String[] or Dim arr[] as String
 

But in a hurry, during initialization we try
 
arr = "6" or
arr = {"6"} or
arr = New String("6")
 

But still we get the same error.
 
Initialize the array as below :
 
arr = New String() {"6"}
 
and it will solve our problem.
