# _Table.GetArray Method

**Office 2010**

Obtains a two-dimensional array that contains a set of row and column values from the Table.

**Namespace:**Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook

**Assembly:**Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.dll)

#### Parameters

- MaxRows
- Type: System.Int32
Specifies the maximum number of rows to return from the Table.

#### Return Value

Type: System.ObjectAn Object value that is a two-dimensional array representing a set of row and column values from the Table. The array is zero-based; an array index (i, j) indexes into the i-th column and j-th row in the array. Columns in the array correspond to columns in the Table, and rows in the array correspond to rows in the Table. The number of rows in the returned array is the lesser value of MaxRows and the actual number of rows in the Table.

The GetArray method offers a conceptually simple means to get values from a Table by copying all or part of the data in the Table (based on the current row) to an array and indexing into the array.

GetArray always starts at the current row of the Table. It returns an array with MaxRows number of rows if there are at least MaxRows number of rows in the Table starting at the current position. If MaxRows is not larger than the total number of rows in the Table, and there are fewer than MaxRows number of elements in the Table starting at the current row, it will return an array that contains only the remaining rows in the Table. If GetArray is called and there are no remaining rows, then GetArray returns an empty array with zero elements.

After obtaining the appropriate rows from the Table and before it returns, GetArray always repositions the current row to the next row in the Table, if there exists a next row. GetArray(n) operates as if _Table.GetNextRow is called n times.

The values in the columns map to columns in the Table, and are therefore determined by the format of the property name used for the column. For more information, see Factors Affecting Property Value Representation in the Table and View Classes.
