  • Can PC-DMIS Automatically Advance An Alphabetical Feature Name Like A Number?

    As the topic titles asks, can PC-DMIS automatically change an alphabetical feature name like a number?

    For instance, if I make a feature named Feature_1 and allow PC-DMIS to make that the default name, the next feature will be Feature_2.

    What if I want it to label the first feature Feature_A and the second Feature_B?

    Before the suggestion is made, I don't control all of the naming schemes for features as my manager demands I use alphabetical rather than numerical, and when you've got 24 features, it would be nice if PC-DMIS could handle A-X instead of 1-24.

    Thanks in advance!

      Not automatically, but you could try ASSIGN/V1="FEATURE_"+CHR(65), then call the feature V1, which should be FEATURE_A
      It you ASSIGN/V2=65, andthen V2=V2+1, you could name the feature as you want.

        I guess it's time to start applying my computer science/programming knowledge then.

        Can you recommend any resources/reading material on the subject as it pertains to PC-DMIS? Also, is it Visual Basic, another language, or proprietary but based on something?

      Here :
      Print rhe "Using_Expressions_and_Variables" chapter (maybe 26 ?) and have always it close to you when you program !!!!!
