Indeed...in the same application came across similar limitation in 
accessing structure elements across array that required a loop construct 
for any way I could come up to get the necessary results.  My 
introduction to the full feature set of ML is of such recent vintage 
that I'm not yet convinced it's not possible; I'm in the process of 
trying to construct a suitably simple example case that illustrates the 
issue to post...

Mayhap can reference the thread in bumping up the response count to the 
enhancement requests?  I'm not sure how to actually get something to TMW 
directed towards a given enhancement as I rarely use their portal/site...
