I have a defined array, $array (see example code below). Now, data1a to data2b represent dynamic data, and there are many more data values to be inserted into this array.

For example: data1 ranges from (data1a-data1z), data2 ranges from (data2a-data2z), and so on. there are different data ranges for each set. These are defined within a database. Here is an example table

data1a, data1b, data1c, data1d
data2a, data2b
data3a, data3b, data3c
data4a, data4b, data4c, data4d, data4e
etc.

What I want to do is dynamically insert the values into the defined array without having to manually insert the values.
$array = array('data1a' => array(), 'data1b' => array(), 'data2a' => array(), 'data2b' => array());

can you please clarify the table schema, resp. how you query the table?
assuming it's a single table/column
$array = array(); 
$sql = "select your_column from yourtable group by your_column";
$rows = mysql_query($sql);
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($rows))
{
  $your_col = $row["your_column"]; 
  $array[$your_col] = array();
}
