multidimensional array

Hi,

I need help to create multidimensional array in c++. I need to store unknown records with 3fields. I hope, my choice for multidimensional array is correct. I want to store fields like

SupplierID | Withdraw | Deposit
..               |        ..        |
..               |       ..         |
..               |        ..        |


Thanks

A std::vector of struct seems like a more flexible approach to me, e.g.

#include <vector>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

struct Record {

  string SupplierID;
  double Withdraw;
  double Deposit;
};

vector<Record> vRecords;

for (int i = 0; i < 10; ++i) {

  Record rc;

  rc.SupplierID = "John Doe";
  rc.Deposit = 100.0;
  rc.Withdraw = 42.0;

  vRecords.push_back(rc);
}

for (i = 0; i < 10; ++i) {

  Record rc = vRecord[i];

  // ...
}

Do you want C++.net or C++ ?
They are NOT the same.  (The code from jkr is C++, with .net you have other built in options you could use).

you could implement a multidimensional array with vector as well.

class StringTable
{
     std::vector<std::vector<std::string> > arr2d;
public:
     StringTable(int nrows, int ncols) : arr2d(nrows, std::vector<std::string>(ncols)) {}
     std::vector<std::string> & operator[](int idx) { return arr2d[idx]; }
     int  getNumCols() { return (int)arr2d[0].size(); }
     int  getNumRows() { return (int)arr2d.size(); }
};    

int main ()
{
   StringTable myarr(5, 10);
   myarr[1][2] = "abc";
   if (myarr[0][2].empty() == false)
   {
         double withdraw = atof(myarr[0][2].c_str());
         ...
   }
   
   return 0;
}

note, for your problem the solution jkr has posted probably is better as it can use different types for columns. if the cells of your "table" may have mixed data or the column order might change, a string table like the one above could be the better way.
