Hello,
I access the following values like this.
    $result->{'HistoricalPricesResult'}->HistoricalPricesResult[0]->Price
    $result->{'HistoricalPricesResult'}->HistoricalPricesResult[0]->Low
    //next row
    $result->{'HistoricalPricesResult'}->HistoricalPricesResult[1]->Price
    $result->{'HistoricalPricesResult'}->HistoricalPricesResult[1]->Low

Open in new window

However I need to consolidate this to

    
    $values[0][price]
    $values[0][low]
    $values[1][price]
    $values[1][low]

Open in new window

2 other strange things.  The values are strings and I need them to be decimals(2 decimal points) and also the min and the max for price and low accross all the rows

We need to see a little bit more of the code to help you.  What you have here is Object-Oriented Notation (and it looks a little confused):

$result->{'HistoricalPricesResult'}->HistoricalPricesResult[0]->Price
$result->{'HistoricalPricesResult'}->HistoricalPricesResult[0]->Low

What you would probably want is an iterator like foreach() if you really need to reassign these variables to new variables.  But with PHP's loose data typing, you might be able to simply use the values "as is" or multiply each by 1.0 to get a floating point value.  PHP has no such thing as a "decimal" value.  You can sort() arrays to find the min and max values - after sorting you can use reset()  and end() to find these values after a sort.
