This
$('#stock_0').html(data)
just puts whatever is in data as the innerHTML for $('#stock_0')

It is not an array, so not sure what you mean. But if you wanted to add more to the $('#stock_0') you can do this:
$('#stock_0').append(moredata);

Hi
Generally arrays in JavaScript are defined like:

var fruits = ["Apple", "Orange", "Donkey"]

So there is no need to add [] next to "stock_0"

Another option:

var arrayContents = new Array();

Now check what value you are getting in data.

You can add values in this array directly by assigning data value to this varibale OR
you can add loop and push items in this variable like:

for loop starts ---
            arrayContents.push(itemshere);
for loop ends


Hope this helps you.
