I have two variables that are used to define 15 columns total. They are a = {"1", "2", "3", "4", "5"} and b = {"1", "2", "3"}. Currently there are 15 columns that are already created with the notation of Column("11"), Column("12"), Column("13"), Column("21"), aka Column(b[1] || a[1]), Column(b[1] || a[2]), etc... I averaged the first 6 rows of those 15 existing columns and placed it into an array of size 15. I called this array "ave". So ave[1] would be the average of the first 6 rows in Column("11"), ave[2] would be the average of the first 6 rows in Column("12"), etc... Now, what I would like to do is create 15 new columns prefixed with "D" using both 'a' & 'b' arrays. Also, have a formula set for those columns that takes the existing column - the average 6 rows of that column. For example, the formula for Column("D11") would be the following: :Name("11") - ave[1] Column("D12") would be the following: :Name("12") - ave[2] My Code: index = 1; For( i = 3, i > 0, i--,
For( j = 5, j > 0, j--,
at << Add Multiple Columns( "D" || b[i] || a[j], 1, numeric, continuous, );
F = Eval Expr(expr(ave[index]));
Column( "D" || b[i] || a[j] ) << Set Formula( :Name("11")-Name Expr(F) );
index = index + 1;
);
); The code above does not work when I attempt to increment the index variable through the 15 averaged values stored in "ave". The other problem is I need to iterate through :Name("11"), :Name("12"), etc. through all combinations of a & b in the formula. I almost need a way to set the formula in the following manner: :Name(b[i] || a[i]) However, :Name must use a string with quotes between them and won't let you do it that way. I tried multiple methods with parse, eval, etc. but with no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
