    Does anybody know how to add values from an array into an array that has already been defined?

    Basically, Array 1 has been opened and closed, now a few sections down I need to enter more variables into the array, but through another array. Obviously I can do this by adding them directly into the firste array, but the second array is being pulled from a separate php file.

    I hope that makes sense. If anybody has any ideas I would appreicate it.

    The following is how you merge one array into another.

    PHP:
    <?php
    $array1 
    = array(24);
    $array2 = array("a""b"4);
    $result array_merge($array1$array2);
    print_r($result);
    ?> 
    The above example will output:

    Array
    (
    [0] => 2
    [1] => 4
    [2] => a
    [3] => b
    [4] => 4
    )

    array_merge($array1, $array2) takes the values in $array2 and adds them to the back of $array1 and then returns the result as a new array.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Ok, that worked. :)

    That was easier than I thought it would be.

    Thanks!
