the subarrays contain variable data and I tried to express that by showing
the array structure that way

if I access $needed_data[0]

it would be an array of two pieces of data ( both variable)

$needed_data[1] would also be an array of two variable pieces of data, etc

if I loop through them all I can use each "member_id / position  "  pair to
update a database

but I have no way to know how many such pairs there will be, and the actual
values of $member_id

and of $position will be different in each case

I hope that helps, sorry I'm not more skilled at expressing this
