I'm working with some hierarchical data and I've ran into a bit of a problem.
It's easiest to think about this problem if you can envision what a directory structure would look like in a multi-dimensional array. What I do is run a query and take the results and popultate an array with them.
Sometimes I can reference the Array by using this notation: RootArray Basically the first record in the array has a multi dimensional array in the 4th cell.
It's totally possible that the next record will be referenced like this: RootArray. In this case the first record in the array has a multi dimensional array in the 4th cell. The 4th cell also contains a multi-dimensional array. Reading the data out of the array is no big deal... writing the data on the other hand... 😠
Anyway... I can dynamically build the string without any problem. Thing is after I run this command: <CFSET MyDir = 'RootArray'>
How do I use my newly created string to add data to the appropriate cell? I can't use <CFSET MyDir = NewValue> because that just overwrites the string in the MyDir variable.
So how do I use a dynamically built string to access a multi-dimensional array?
Thanks in advance for the help!!!

Have something to add?
