```Hi,

the bad news first, you have *not* created a vector, you
have created a function stat[] and it would be difficult
to change the function values. You have mixed up the
function call stat[i] with the Part[] operation somearray[[i]].
You mean
stat=Table[0,{10},{2}]

and

stat[] as you expect.
and
stat[[1,1]]=1

will assign a value to the first component of the first vector.

Regards
Jens
