hey is there a way to array a period of time say like (c15..c215) ?
The Personal Criteria Formula Language is just that, a formula language. It is not a programming or scripting language and does not have variables, arrays or looping structures. This doesn't mean you can't do complex things with it (see the Days Since Last Peak (or other day-counting needs) topic for example), but complex things generally require equally complex formulas as you need to check everything individually.
There are functions and indicators which be used in a PCF which cover a span of time. For example, you could check for the maximum close over the period of time covered by C15 through C215 using something like:
StockFinder uses RealCode, which is far more fully featured and an actual programming language if this is something you need to do.
