Script based on List in a field?

Question asked by ezeitgeist on Mar 16, 2017

If I have a list of Serial_IDs of records in a field, how can I extract one ID at a time to create new records using the ID as the reference field?

 

Ie. Field has:

"21

36

1420

1288"

 

If it were just a single ID, I'd store it in a variable and then go to the Layout I want, Create New Record/Request, and place the variable in the desired field, have it fill in various other fields in that record from globals previously filled out, and then Commit Record and return to original layout. BUT, in this case, there are many IDs in the same field as a list (and the number of IDs will vary) ... is there a way to extract individual IDs from the list and start with the first and do a loop that goes until the end in creating records? I want to essentially create individual records with the same information for each ID.
