## 3D-array

The

**is a special type of array that represents a three-dimensional ordered sequence of scalar (i.e. non-array) data.**

*3D-array*See also the array for an example of a

**of integers.**

*3D-array*In Excel, it is represented by

**ranges of cells with**

*N₁***rows and**

*N₂***columns.**

*N₃*The

**can be thought as a 1D-array of which the elements are**

*3D-array*

*2D-arrays*More precisely, a

**range represents a**

*N₁ x N₂ x N₃***that is regarded to contain**

*3D-array***elements, each of which is a 2D-array with**

*N₁***rows and**

*N₂***columns.**

*N₃*In other words, the convention of the data ordering in a

**is first by the range counter, followed by rows inside the current range and then by columns in that same range.**
