first off, what you wrote is a syntax error

second, if he wrote

char myArray[10][X]; //where X is the max size of the string
char str[X] = "string!"; //haven't worked with strings in a while might have to call a function to convert the string to the char array. don't remember. (#include string.h)

then

myArray[3] = str;

then myArray[3] would contain the value of str, ie: "string!" and not a pointer to the pointer of the string.
