Hi Hugh,

as of Rev 4 (if I recall correctly) you can store the whole array in a custom property, which you would need to set:

local tArray

put "malte" into tArray[1]["firstname"]
put "pfaff-brill" into tArray[1]["lastname"]
put "linus" into tArray[2]["firstname"]
put "pfaff" into tArray[2]["lastname"]

set the cAddressBook of this stack to tArray
save this stack


-- retrieve it

local tArray

put the cAddressBook of this stack into tArray
answer tArray[1]["firstname"]

Hope that helps,
