# For and For each in the same loop

I have problems using a for loop and a for each expression in the same time.

My data looks something like this:

Temp:

LOAD * INLINE[

Client     DimID     DimPos      RowNo

A          A1          1               1

A          A2          2               2

A          A3          3               3

B          A1          1               4

B          B1          2               5

B          B3          3               6

C          B1          1               7

C          B2          2               8

C          C1          3               9

];

I want to create variables of the DimID for each client to each DimPos

The result would look like this for DimPos:

Dim1A=A1

Dim1B=A1

DIM1C=B1

Dim2A=A2

Dim2B=B1

Dim2C=B1

I dont know how many clients there are (the point is that you can add or remove one or more clients).

I do know that it always going to be 8 dimensions for each client.

I've done this

Set Clientlist='A','B','C';

FOR a=0 to 9

For Each Client in \$(Clientlist)

Let Dim\$(a)ID\$(Client) =  Peek('DimId',Peek('DimPos',\$(a),'Temp'),'Temp');

NEXT Client

NEXT a

...but it gives the wrong result..

Can someone help me out?

HI

FOR each Client in \$(Clientlist)

FOR a=0 to 9

For Each Client in \$(Clientlist)

Let Dim\$(a)ID\$(Client) =  Peek('DimId',Peek('DimPos',\$(a),'Temp'),'Temp');

NEXT a

NEXT Client

First close the inner loop and then outer loop

Sorry, my bad.. I've corrected it.

Thanks Mayil, but that will give a result of all 9 DimId on all clients.

I want to add 1 to \$(a) at the same time the client changes.. When the loop is finished with the first client

a=1,2,3

after this the client switches, and at the same time I want the \$(a) to restart with DimPos =1 then 2 then 3. (But the Peek function takes RowNo...)

Can I use the Step function after the for statement? Something like this:

For a=1 to 3 step 3

Can I use a i IF statement to get the right result?
