Subject: Re: Loop and macro help
Thank you for this code. I'm beginning to understand what I need to do,
although this syntax didn't work exactly right. Let me add a little
explaination and see if this makes sense. qA4 is a place, given a numeric
value, but the values don't go in continuous order (e.g., place =
1,2,4,5,6,8,10, etc.) because some places have been omitted from this
analysis. Since I need a Base[Place #]_DEL for every qA4, then what you
have below doesn't work. qC1 is simply, 1,2,3,4,5. Can I alter the first
line to be "loop #i = 1 2 4 5. " and keep line 2, or will that not work?
And if that does work to loop through with defined values rather than
continuous, how do I get a different output variable for each iteration of
the loop? (i.e., Base#i#j_DEL) Thank you so much for your help!
