Store a field into a variable

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to create a table with some years starting from a label field.

I have the label PRICE_2013 and with the instruction:

Right (@37,4) as starting_Year

I can get 2013 tha is the starting year of my study. Now I'd like to put this starting_Year into a variable  ($vyear) in order to make a loop and icrease automatically the value of the year like this:

//first year


$(vyear) as Year,


////Second year


//($(vyear)+'1') as Year,



I tried to set as variable with GetFieldSelections() but It doesn't work because It doesn't recognize the filed starting_Year, maybe because It don't see 2013 as an integer but as a string i don't know!

Maybe somebody can help!

Re: Store a field into a variable

Hi Ylenia,

maybe this helps you to answer your question:

// preparing raw input data:



    Right ('PRICE_2013',4) AS StartYear

AutoGenerate 1;

// fill Variable

LET vStartYear = Peek('StartYear');

//exampl for next 3 years:


    $(vStartYear) + RecNo() AS MyYear

AutoGenerate 3;
