Just discovering the joys of “bucket variables”, I’ve realised that it’s possible to use non-numeric values in the repetition number, as long as I use quotes around the repetition ‘number’ when referencing it . For example, if I want to record a value for a record whose key value is a unique serial prefixed with “PPL”, I can set the variable thus;
Set variable [$$Test[PPL_kp_id]; Value:”xxxxx”]
and I can then reference it thus;
The alternative seems to be to strip out the (unique) numerical part of the key and use that as the repetition number, but I just wondered whether using the whole thing has any pitfalls or downsides?
