Collections vs. Arrays

A collection is very similar to an array; however, the collection is an object (see Objects, Methods, and Properties) with various methods that in many instances make dealing with a collection much more convenient than dealing with an array. In Statistica Visual Basic, all results spreadsheets and graphs from analyses are returned as collections, which makes the programmatic editing, storing, and further processing of results very convenient.

See How to Specify Arrays in Statistica Visual Basic Functions, Array Indexing, and Statistica Visual Basic Library of Matrix Functions - ReDim for additional information regarding arrays.
