As you haven't gotten a reply yet on the list, I
figured I'd have a stab at it :-)
First of all, you are setting up the arrays correctly,
so no worries there.
To answer your second question, you have a few
options, depending on the circumstances.
1) If the second dimension is fixed (always NN
elements), you can suffice by saying:
put (the number of lines of the keys of tArray / NN)
2) If however NN is variable, you can get it with the
put the keys of tArray into tKeys
split tKeys using return and comma
put the number of lines of the keys of tKeys
I know it looks convoluted, but it works, even if the
second dimension varies.
