David,

Before i went mad, i was already crazy ;)

The best trick i can give you is this:

put the myprops["keyname"] of mystack into x
x is not an array.

put the myprops of mystack into x

x is an array...

BUT, you cannot store an array into the myprops["keyname"] of mystack 

only into the myprops of mystack 

simply because Rev can't [yet] embed arrays into arrays...

hope that helps...

I TRIED TO PASTE YOUR SCRIPT INTO mc BUT IT REFUSED TO GET THE RIGHT 
CLIPBOARD 
despite trying from notes to ultraedit to mc 3 times and it didn't go into 
mc... 


cheers
Xavier
