Hi,

I have a created a program that will create a single account with the code with the Class being called Account.

Account newAccount = new Account () ;

this is fine but I want to create multiple accounts without coding a new name for each account i.e. newAccount1, newAccount2

what is the syntax for this as I thought it would be something like

Account newAccount[1] = new Account () ;

You should do like this

Account accArray[]=new Account[10];

accArray[0]=new Account();

If you don't know how many accounts you are creating ahead of time, you can use the ArrayList class:

ArrayList accountList=new ArrayList();
...
done=false;
while (!done) {
//...Code to get/generate account information
   accountList.add(new Account());
//...
   if (areWeDone())
      done=true;
}
