Im very new to this and im trying to write a program that will run some calculations for me.

I want to have "x" number of sections to each project, and each section has "y" number of segments. The forulas are all the same, i just need to be able to adjust the number of "x" sections in the project, and "y" segments in each section. I also need to be able to total it all and make some reports of the information, and save it to a file I can edit and review later.

If some one could give me just a point in the right direction It would be great. I dont know where to start, arrays,database, or even some other form of data storage and manipulation. Thanks so much for any suggestions anyone could give.

Take a look at using Arraylists. You don't have to specify how many elements an arraylist has to take, so for your situation you can use an arraylist that contains more arraylists.

Just fill in the blanks...
