      Summary

      Repeating variables not set when index is a variable

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12 advanced

      Operating system version

      Windows 7

      Description of the issue

      When assigning values to a repeating variable using variables for the index FM assumes the variable is not repeating thus ignoring the index.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      The following works:
      Set Variable [$$M[1]; Value:1]
      Set Variable [$$M[2]; Value:2]
      .
      .
      Set Variable [$$M[9]; Value:9]


      The following does not works:
      $idxName = 1
      $idxLabel = 2
      $idxIcon = 9
      Set Variable [$$M[$idxName]; Value:1]
      Set Variable [$$M[$idxLabel]; Value:2]
      .
      .
      Set Variable [$$M[$idxIcon]; Value:9]

      Expected result

      Obviously 9 differnt repetitions 1 through 9 for variable $$M, that is $$M[1] = 1; $$M[2] = 2 ... $$M[9] = 9

      Actual result

      Each value is assigned to the variable $$M replacing the last value, No repetitions, just $$M with the last value assigned.
