Hi @saraawq,

Here in properties

Collection-> list name
Item.-> what value you adding that one alone
Type argument-> list of array type.

You should not add just pass your value alone

How do i pass in the value in the array?

for example my arrayVarName is 1 then subsequently it will be 2
How do I stored it so that 2 will not overwrite 1?

Add the “string” data type values in to collection .

Add to collection activity “type” should be string.

Then use this list or convert this list to array by.
List.ToArray

okay thanks! How do I see the values in my array? Do i just write message box ‘finalArray.ToString’ or?

Hi @saraawq,
Use the below code it will return the string value with comma separated.

String.join(",",finalArray)

Use log message or write line or message box activity to see the result

Use string.join("," ,array )

Or
Loop the array with for each
