Adding a name of an array

I want to add a variable of a workbook.worksheet combo to an array. This is the code where it is defined.

VBA Code:
Set wsDst = Workbooks(DocYearName).Worksheets(Combo)

My procedure will loop through rows in a table and depending on the date of the row, wsDst may be different. I have a for next loop that loops through each row in a table. As shown above, wsDst refers to the worksheet in the appropriate workbook and may be different on each iteration of a for next loop or for each row. On each iteration of the loop, I want to add the value stored in wsDst to an array if it is not already there.

After the loop has finished, I then want to sort each sheet in the array. These will be all the sheets in the financial year workbooks that have had data copied to them and will need sorting. This is instead of sorting the spreadsheet on each iteration. I only know how to make it sort on every iteration but since someone helped me change my procedure to arrays, I am not even sure how to do that. Can someone help me with the code to put the workbook/worksheet combos into an array if they do not exist there and then sort them at the end of the procedure please?

Here is my procedure.
VBA Code:
Sub cmdCopy()
'On Error GoTo ErrorMsg
    Dim wsDst As Worksheet, wsHours As Worksheet, wsTrack As Worksheet, worker As String, wsSrc As Worksheet, tblrow As ListRow
