I am using IM 5.0 and have been trying to nest 3 three other reports,
each have the same 5 "String Array" arguments. If I build the same
report, but use "String" data types and not "String Arrays" ( for both
the container and the nested reports, the report works fine).

The "Data Window Error" I get when I just go ahead and run the report
with "String Arrays" is "Nest arguments are incorrectly specified" and
if I change the container report arguments to "String" then I get
"Retrieve argument 1 does not match expected type".

Based on the information I have read, what I have is syntactically
correct and should work. Are there any reported problems or alerts
regarding "String Arrays".

This is a know limitation: arrays cannot be used in nested reports. I'll
try to find out if it will be solved in IM6.
