Maybe; depends on what a 'Dynamic BI' is. If I Google it, there's a company named this but also a Toyota car. Both are not available in PowerLanguage. :)

If you want help, it might help if you help us help you.

Since "BI" usually means 2 , I would assume he means a dynamic 2 dimensional array...

Good point. On StackOverflow there are around 4 questions per month that use bi-dimensional array to mean a 2D array, so quite rare but it is a known term. I didn't knew that so I learned something new today.

I do not assume anything. It makes an... a** out of U and Me.

We can't do without assumptions (not when we try to), and it's also an assumption to assume that assumptions make us something 'unpleasant'.

Luckily, we don't need to concern ourselves with this thread anymore since the author already received an answer to his crosspost on BMT. I think we can assume that we all wasted a little bit of our time here, moving towards answering something that's already answered.

* That's only true, if the assumption is wrong.. lol

By definition bi-dimensional means two-dimensional. As far as I know you can't create dynamic multi-dimensional arrays in EL.

While Easy Language can't create dynamic 2-dimensional arrays, it is possible to do that by integrating Lua into Multicharts. See this thread:

You can do pretty much the same thing with most other languages using DLLs. I've done it with FreeBASIC.

A collection of lists or maps would provide a multi dimensional and dynamic solution for storing values, too.
