in thread why the array index has to start at 0??

Now as you say it, I darkly remember that option base already existed at the time where VB did have the vancy "visual" sticker attached and was just called "BASIC". It is interesting that the same plunder had been incorparted at least three times in history - BASIC being first, followed by APL, then Perl.
