  I call a COM function which returns a multi dimensional variant array of type VT_VARIANT|VT_ARRAY. I am using PHP 5.0.5 version.
   I have problems to print this multi array and I get a warning saying "can handle only 1 dimension variant arrays."
   Kindly find my code below and let me know where the problem is.

Reproduce code:
//call the COM
$instance = new COM("ArrayTry.myarray");

//define the VT_VARIANT|VT_ARRAY which will hold the multi dimensional variant array returned from the COM

$StringVariant = new VARIANT();

//call the COM function GetUserList() which returns the multi variant array 

print_r($StringVariant);  // here I get Object id #number as output in the php page

Expected result:
Should print the multi array and its associated elements.

Actual result:
display shows "Object ID#number"
