Hi, please help me with this.

Suppose I have a data like this:
a b c
3 4 3
2 3 4
2 5 6
2 0 4


What I want is something like this, of course the following command doesn't work
gen arrayZ[_n]=( a[_n], b[_n], c[_n])
so that arrayZ[3] for example would be (2,5,6)
ie. when I invoke Z[t] it will give me a VECTOR of t-th row

I need this because I will do a whole bunch of operations to Z[t]Z[t]' 
How to achieve this?
