    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!

          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;
