Fortran_Nested_Arrays?

(OP)
Hello,

Can anyone teach me how to declare an allocatable array with another array (TYPE) nested inside? Or suggest better way to store data below?

I wish to store data into an array like...
Automaker (i) % Month (j) % SALES(j)
Automaker (i) % Month (j) % COST(j)

ex)
Automaker (bmw) % Month(JAN) % Sales(JAN)
Automaker (bmw) % Month(JAN) % COST(JAN)
Automaker (bmw) % Month(FEB) % Sales(FEB)
Automaker (bmw) % Month(FEB) % COST(FEB)
;;
Automaker (Audi) % Month(JAN) % Sales(JAN)
Automaker (Audi) % Month(FEB) % Sales(FEB)


I used to declare

Type Month
integer sales , cost
End type

then

Type (month), dimension (:), allocatable :: Array1

for the inner array that I use.



Thank you,

RE: Fortran_Nested_Arrays?

Not really sure what you are asking. Would you ever have

CODE

automaker(bmw)%Month(JAN)%Sales(FEB)
automaker(bmw)%Month(FEB)%Sales(DEC) 
If not, then why would you want Sales and Cost to be indexed?
