ArrLongestItem – The value and index of the longest element of an array of any type

' The longest item in an array of any type' (it applies the LEN function to all the items in the array'  and then takes the highest value)'' FIRST and LAST indicate which portion of the array' should be considered; they default to the first' and last element, respectively' if LONGESTINDEX is specified, it receives the index of' the longest element of the arrayFunction ArrLongestItem(arr As Variant, Optional ByVal First As Variant, _    Optional ByVal Last As Variant, Optional LongestIndex As Long) As Variant    Dim index As Long    Dim maxLength As Long        If IsMissing(First) Then First = LBound(arr)    If IsMissing(Last) Then Last = UBound(arr)        ArrLongestItem = arr(First)    maxLength = Len(ArrLongestItem)    LongestIndex = First        For index = First + 1 To Last        If maxLength < Len(arr(index)) Then            ArrLongestItem = arr(index)            maxLength = Len(ArrLongestItem)            LongestIndex = index        End If    Next    End Function
