For dynamic SQL array operations are done through the medium of API array
descriptors and functions (isc_array.set_desc() etc.) and you work with
array slices. You can't refer to array dimensions dynamically in DSQL.

AFAIK, the VCL has no support for FB/IB arrays. IB Objects does have
it; I don't know about FIBPlus and IBX.

If you want to roll your own, the API Guide has detailed instructions.
