# Array Question

## Recommended Posts

Hi, this may seem really silly, but I can't seem to find how to do it. I have an array (see below) and it has 2 dimensions as shown (example). What I would really like to do is remove the middle (i.e. index 1) element from each row and add its value onto the last (i.e. index 2). How would I go about doing this?

```Dim \$array[4][3] = [[1,2,3],[3,4,5],[5,6,7],[7,8,9]]
;Would like to remove the middle values to get following array:
Dim \$array[4][2] = [[1,5],[3,9],[5,13],[7,17]]```

Thanks.

You could always just make a new array and populate it with the data you want from the first. Then copy the new array to the original

[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

```Dim \$array[4][3] = [[1, 2, 3],[3, 4, 5],[5, 6, 7],[7, 8, 9]]
For \$iX = 0 To UBound(\$array) - 1
\$array[\$iX][1] += \$array[\$iX][2]
Next
ReDim \$array[4][2]```
