Hey Everyone: I know this horse has been beat to death, but I can't find my archive for it. I need to create a repeat relation where the quantity for a hose is reading the length parameter instead of the rpt.qty parameter. This is one of those things I haven't done in forever and can't remember the exact syntax. Thanks! Wes Holliday
Our part numbers are 7-digits. Instances will have extra characters after the 7th digit that are numbers and/or letters and could have an underscore thrown in. 1234567_x1 1234567x1 1234567_fl
I have a series of IF-ELSE-ENDIF's for a BOM table. The problem is this:
My last two nested IF statements state to test=extract(asm_mbr_name, 8,3) IF test == "a certain character sequence" new_name=extract(asm_mbr_name, 1,10) ELSE test=extract(asm_mbr_name, 8,4) IF test == "a certain character sequence" new_name=extract(asm_mbr_name, 1,11) ELSE new_name=extract(asm_mbr_name, 1,7) ENDIF ENDIF
The problem is occasionally a 10-character model name will slip through the first IF above depending on the situation. When it does as you can see the relation then looks for the 8-11 position characters. Since the model has only 10 the relation doesn't know what to do with it and I have a blank cell in the table...at least I am assuming it doesn't know what to do with it.
Is this a bug or suppose to work that way? Does anybody have a work around?
On a side note...this is very interesting. I sent in a completely separate email to this board with the same exact Subject line as another from 2 years ago. It seems to have attached itself to that one. Steve Galayda
