> > Aren't FB records limited to 32K? I believe this is true but haven't confirmed it recently. However, I believe only the structure size itself is limited to 32k, the data in the structure can be much larger. Also, on a slightly tangential note, it might be possible to remove this limit at some future time when under the control of FBtoC. > > > dim student(_numStudents) as Student Instead of statically allocating an array based on some fixed amount (_numStudents), I've been very happy using dynamic arrays for my own structures. Students would appear to be a fluctuating number. dynamic student(_maxLong) as Student // only allocate what I need and allow it to grow This works with all the record structures I use including records within records and static arrays within records.
