I have a Word doc with some numbers referred in the foot notes. and I am exporting these references as a csv file.
VBA Code:
Sub FindControlNumber()
Dim exp, exp1 As RegExp
Set exp = New RegExp
exp.Pattern = "\b[A-Za-z]{3}[0-9]{7}\b"
exp.Global = True

Dim splits(1000) As String
Dim x As Long

Dim results As MatchCollection
Set results = exp.Execute(ActiveDocument.StoryRanges(wdFootnotesStory))
x = 1

For Each res In results
splits(x) = res
x = x + 1
Next res


Dim Filename As String, line As String
Dim i As Integer
Filename = "C:\Users\Mohit\Desktop\VBA Export" & "\Control Numbers.csv"
Open Filename For Output As #2
Print #2, "Control Numbers"
For i = LBound(splits) To UBound(splits)

Print #2, splits(i)

Next i
Close #2
MsgBox "Control Numbers were exported to " & Filename, vbInformation
End Sub

The code above was working fine and just suddenly starting throwing error at 'splits(x) = res' I have tried checking my regex and I can see that it works fine. If I change splits(x) to splits(6) or something similar it works like a charm .
Can someone please help ?

And what happens if you modify that "1000" to "2000"?
VBA Code:
Dim splits(2000) As String

Bye
