Looping in script

Hi People,

I'm tring to loop in the script and i'm founding a few erros.


Load ID

From (...);

// ID is a filed name with ID codes

Them i want to:

for i=1 to noOfRows('tab1')

               Let a=fieldvalue(ID,i);

Load A

from (..... $(a).xlsx) ;

I'm having problems with this so a also tried to numerate the xlsx files from 1 to 10 and

for i=1 to 10

Load A

from (...$(i).xlsx) ;

and didnt work as well.

Can someone help?

Re: Looping in script

Hello Eliano,

The basic syntax that you need to use is:

FOR i = 1 to NoOfRows('tab1')

LET a = fieldvalue('ID', $(i)) ;



In both of your examples you dont have the NEXT statement. Also remember that you need to use the dollar expansion around your variable.

Hope this helps.

Sorry about the delay.

The problem, as you mencioned was with the next operator.

Many thanks for both of you.
