Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I am having a strange problem with an Array inside of a For..To..Next loop. It is strange to me because it only happens when the value I am looking for does not exist. What I am trying to do is create a GUI for users to reset their password. The end user types in their password which is then checked against a file - list of all the emails registered which I For... To... Next loop through - to see if it exists. If the email DOES exist it works just fine. However, when I type in a dummy email for testing (I want to prompt them to register instead) it gives me an error.

Here is the error message:

"G:\Eric\LoginGUITesting\Business Technologies\loginForm.au3" (303) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:
If $aUserAccountsDB[$i][$iEmailField] = $sUserEmail Then
->10:43:15 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:1

Here is the snippet of code causing the problem:

Local $bEmailExists = False
Local $iEmailField = 1
Local $aUserAccountsDB = ""

_FileReadToArray($sMainDir & "adminFiles\" & "userAccounts.csv", $aUserAccountsDB, $FRTA_NOCOUNT, ",")

For $i = 0 To UBound($aUserAccountsDB, $UBOUND_ROWS)
    If $aUserAccountsDB[$i][$iEmailField] = $sUserEmail Then

        $bEmailExists = True


        $bEmailExists = False



Anyone see what I am obviously missing? :'(

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
