How do I move/populate a VARRAY from a form?

This is my Varray , definied in the form:
TYPE detail_record is record (
   alloc_id    number,
  cust_id     number);
Type CUST_ARRAY is varray(20) of DETAIL_RECORD;
CUST_FERC  CUST_ARRAY.

This is my code to populate the varray:
if :form_cust_id1 >0 then
   cust_ferc(1).cust_id        := :form_CUST_ID1;
   cust_ferc(1).alloc_id       := :form_alloc_ID1;
end if;

if :form_cust_id2 >0 then
   cust_ferc(2).cust_id        := :form_CUST_ID2;
   cust_ferc(2).alloc_id       := :form_alloc_ID2;
end if;

is this the correct way? beacuse I also get an ORA-06531 error which implies that teh array wa not populated.

CUST_FERC  CUST_ARRAY := cust_array(); -- to initialize with non null but empty by using the constructor;

say cust_ferc.extend;

then say something like cust_ferc(1).cust_id := :form_cust_id2;

similarly say extend again and then go ahead and use the second element.

If u dont want to use extend then do something like this after the begin statement

cust_ferc := cust_array((1,1),(2,2)); -- this will create 2 elements with the constructor.

For more information refer to online oracle pl/sql documentation which has good examples of sample code of varrays , nested tables, associative arrays etc.

Thanks
