    Multi-dimensional arrays

    Tip- think of multi-dimensional arrays in terms of a table holding columns and rows.
    To create a multi-dimensional array simply specify the number of columns and rows you want the array to have.

    myArray(2,3) would have 3 columns and 4 rows, this would basically be like a regular array that has 3 columns, but with 4 rows.

    And here is some ASP code that demonstrates the use of a multi-dimensional array:
    Think of each cell holding a value. Below cell (0,3) holds a "bmw".

      0 1 2
    0 toyota white 22.000
    1 ford blue 12.500
    2 porshe red 50.000
    3 bmw yellow 26.000

    Look at the code below which holds the values in the table above;

    Dim myArray(2,3)

    myArray(0,0) = "toyota"
    myArray(1,0) = "white"
    myArray(2,0) = "22.000"
    myArray(0,1) = "ford"
    myArray(1,1) = "blue"
    myArray(2,1) = "12.500"
    myArray(0,2) = "porshe"
    myArray(1,2) = "red"
    myArray(2,2) = "50.000"
    myArray(0,3) = "bmw"
    myArray(1,3) = "yellow"
    myArray(2,3) = "26.000"

    This snippet of code will use the myArray(2,3) above
    Response.Write "<table border='0'>"
    Response.Write "<tr><td>Row</td><td>Car</td>"
    Response.Write "<td>Color</td><td>Cost</td></tr>"
    'UBound(myArray,2) will return the highest element in the array for the '2' dimension. 'In this case '2' signifies the rows dimension, '1' which
    ' is the default would have meant columns
    'the highest element in the row column in this case is 3
    'so we could look on our loopcounter going from For i=0 to 3
    For i = 0 to UBound(myArray, 2)
    Response.Write "<tr><td>" & i & "</td>"
    Response.Write "<td>" & myArray(0,i) & "</td>"
    Response.Write "<td>" & myArray(1,i) & "</td>"
    Response.Write "<td>" & myArray(2,i) & "</td></tr>"
    Response.Write "</table>"

    The above yields the following result:

    Row  Car             Color        Cost
    0       toyota         white        22.000
    1       ford            blue          12.500
    2       porshe        red           50.000
    3       bmw           yellow       26.000
