Array[A,3]={1,2,3} attempts to assign {1,2,3} to Array[A,3] (since Set 
doesn't evaluate the left hand side) whose head is protected.

There are so many differences between the first and apparent intended 
meaning (I assume you want a1 dimensional array whose elements are 1,2 
and 3) I don't know where to begin.
