Can Beginseq use a variable as the sequence name?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I can use get this to work

Beginseq(Site1_Poll)

however I would like to generate a sequence name - ie "site"+counter+"_Poll" and use that with Beginseq

I have tried execute Beginseq("site"+counter+"_Poll")

I have also tried mystring = "site"+Counter+"_Poll" which gives me

Site1_Poll

Site2_Poll

etc

then beginseq(mystring) with no success

I think I'm close but I just cannot get the syntax correct to get it to call / execute the sequence

Can it be done?

Yes, you'd have to use execute():

execute("beginseq(" + myString + ")")

beginseq() and a couple others are a little odd in that they take the symbol name of the sequence, not a string with the name.  Its a left over from very early DAQFactory.
