This article demonstrates how to perform a BULK COLLECT into a Nested Table (sometimes referred to as an Array) where the SELECT statement has a WHERE clause with an equality condition (=) which also references another Nested Table. (The term Nested Table and Array are used interchangeably here.)

Basically, something like this:

 select bulk collect emp_name into :EMP_ARRAY from EMP_TBL where DEPT_ID = :DEPT_ARRAY;
