In my program I am using an array[0..9,0..9] of Extended. But I would like to have the user to determine the size of the array, instead of pre-defining it.
It doesn't have to be an array. It can be a pointer or something that can be accessed as a bi-dimensional array, but with the size determined at run-time.

I tried that solution. It locked my machine. Than I took that idea, but used GetMem instead of that weird memory allocation procedure. It worked, but the program itself didn't. When I used an array larger than 4x4 the calculation result was always zero. Maybe it's because my program calls a function recursively.

Does anyone have any other suggestion?

use variant type

This answer is way too generic. Be more specific (e.g. give me an source code). Just changing the variable type from extended to variant will not solve the problem.
