Max Array Elements??

Recommended Posts


I am having an issue with defining a 9x63 array. Is there a maximum number of elements a two-dimensional array can have?

This is the code I am using, with the elements abbreviated. There are 63 elements in each row:

Dim $DistCount = 63
Dim $DistInfo[9][$DistCount] = [["A0", "B0", "B1"......], _
        ["HNC", "MVD", "MVM",......], _
        ["HNC", "MVD", "MVD",......], _
        ["Huntsville Center", "Vicksburg MS",......], _
        ["CPC25", "CPC26",......], _
        [0, 0, 0,......], _
        [21, 34, 36,......], _
        ["","","",......], _

The error I am getting is:

==> Missing right bracket ')' in expression.:

Dim $DistInfo[9][$DistCount] = [["A0", "B0",........"2"^ERROR

The error indicates after the 50th element in the 9th row. Does this mean anything to anybody? I cannot find anything missing, so the only thing I can guess is that there is a maximum number of elements allowed.

The error occurred when I added the 9th row. If I remove the 9th row and change the Dim to Dim $DistInfo[8][$DistCount], it works fine. I also tried copying row 8 in case I had missed a quote or something, but I get the same error.

Please help!!

I would imagine you are bumping up against the AutoIt line length limit of 4095. Thus the line is truncated at some point where Autoit is expecting to see a ) and yo uget the error.

I would suggest loading your array differently - possibly load smaller arrays and then use loops to get them into the larger final version. It might take a little longer, but you can keep the lines down to more reasonable lengths.
