Name Unresolved error for existing column


Occasional Contributor

I'm having trouble getting my code to recognize Column 16, "Bias Setpoint".  I'd like to have my code step through each Bias Setpoint row and add adjacent rows to output RAPi.  However, I get a Name Unresolved error for "Bias Setpoint" column.  I've tried to just call on it by using Column(16), but that did not work either.  I had even tried to simplify the expression and just equate :RAPi[i]=:Name("Bias Setpoint")[i] , but still no success.  I've also tried defining bsp=Column(dt,16);  and For Each Row(:RAPi=:bsp); but still no success.  Can someone assist in this debug?  I'm not sure what I'm doing incorrectly.  Thank you

The summary table dt2 is created after dt, and thus it looks like dt2 will be the "current" data table when the assignment within the loop is run. 


On way to avoid this is to include the table variable when addressing table data.

For example:

For(i = 1, i <= w, i++,
    dt:RAPi[i] = dt:Name("Bias Setpoint")[i] + dt:Name("Bias Setpoint")[i + 1]
