If several fields in your application have the same data type and contain similar related information, it may be more convenient to use an array, rather than individual fields.
For example, if your application displays quarterly sales, it may be more convenient to use an array field with four elements, rather than four separate fields. The array is shown in the following illustration.
To create an array field, set the Array Size field in the Field Definition window to the number of elements you want in the array. In the previous example, the array size was set to 4.
