Arithmetic operation into an array subscript

Postby Rod » Tue Jan 26, 2010 1:08 am

can you put an arithmetic operation into an array subscript or do you have to do it in 2 instructions.
adults = adults + 1
subx = adults * 150
move indata to array((adults * 150) + 53) or
move indata to array(subx + 53)
move salary to array(subx + 60)
or do you have to have the subx calc before every move
subx = adults * 150 +53
move indata to array(subx)
subx = adults * 150 + 60
move salary to array(subx)

seems like a lot of wasted code/space

Hello,

What happened when you tried it? If you haven't tried it, do so and see what happens.

I would get compile errors like items not defined, highlighting items in the subscript until I did the 2 instructions, then I had to insert the 2 instructions everywhere. Just did not seem right.

wouldn't it be easier to have a two dimensional array?

Hi Guy,

Not to worry :)

Also, Easytrieve does support multi-dimensional arrays.
Hope this helps,
