    Creating an attribute reference with text extraction


      Hi all,


      Is it possible to create an attribute reference from the results of a text manipulation function?


      I want to reference a variable number of sub-element's attributes. This can be done manually or with PI Builder, but it would be convenient to do so in PSE.

      For example - an ideal solution would replace the "1" in the following attribute reference with the ID of the primary attribute's title, and execute it as such.




      I'm wondering if I can force PSE to interpret a string, like the one built in "ThermoCouple1", as an attribute reference. If so, it could automatically reference another attribute with the same ID.

      In this case, I used Right() to pull the ID in the sub-attribute TC ID.
