There are several boost libraries that may be of help - I am thinking of boost.array, boost.multi_array and possibly even boost.multi_index. This is in addition to standard containers such as map and vector.
However it is difficult to give very specific advice as I find your mail unclear. The best I can suggest is to think through your problem again, thinking how to make it easier for others to understand - in my experience the very process of thinking how to explain a problem clearly to others may help /you/ solve the problem by yourself.
Your mail would also benefit from being passed through a spelling and grammar checker prior to posting.
I hope this advice is of help to you,
