I need help about working with arrays in an access database.
1) How do you use array in create table statement?

stmt.executeUpdate("CREATE TABLE tblA (ID INT PRIMARY KEY, Var2 INT, Var3 VARCHAR(50), ???)");
//I want Var4 to be an array
2) How do you insert values into Var4, which is initially an empty array?
3) Retrieving an array. Is this correct?
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(
"SELECT Var4 FROM tblA WHERE ID = 200");
rs.next();
Array arrVar4 = rs.getArray("Var4");
4) How do you update Var4 using updateArray?

In Oracle you do it like this:
ArrayDescriptor desc = ArrayDescriptor.createDescriptor("<array name>", connection);
ARRAY newArray = new ARRAY(...);
Don't know if it applies to access?
