Thank you both for looking into this and responding. I was already going through the Data Manipulation>Lists and hence queried. Since we already create a variable and the desired type then why is there need to ‘instantiate’ it.

Hi @akshay_naik

I think u mean why we use this Assign

Then the reason for above assign is

To allocate memory to the created list where actually now you can store values.
