Summary:
The VpeArrayClass is an extension of the Starzen VpeReport class and creates handles to print via an array. Advantages are that the array can be filled in any order you like (based entered selection criteria) and is completely independent from the report order. In fact, the report order does not have to contain an index at all !!! The order is based on the OrderString you put in the array, so it can contain fields from parents, long description fields etc. etc. So no more copying-down data from the parent to the childs, adding indexes just for reporting etc. Although it sounds slower, you will find it isn't because you can use much better indexing for selecting the records.
