Yes, I know the syntax is not valid, but I laid it out that way in order to show what I was trying to accomplish - the general idea anyway.
I think what you said about need a multidimensional array is where I need to look. What I am trying to accomplish is this:
I have a table that contains all of the text used on my website - each phrase with its own record, in each language we offer. So when a user logs into my site, a search is done using the language id, and the term is returned with the correct language for the user. I do this now with GLOBAL inc files for each language. I thought it would be nice if I could use only one GLOBAL inc file and populate it with the terms from my table.
I will try working with multi-dimensional arrays to see what I can figure out - if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.
Thanks so much
