Temporary Variables in Calc Script

Accepted answer
edited Dec 6, 2021 2:33PM in Planning 7 comments


Are there any tricks for storing strings in temporary variables in PBCS? I'm trying to find a way to use a dynamic script instead of repeating similar code.

Content (required):

I have a requirement to split certain dollars into several different accounts, and the code is primarily the same except the suffix.

For example, I have the following accounts:

Direct (g123456 a1)

Direct (g654321 a2)

This results in two different lines of code because of the suffix:

@member(@concatenate(@concatenate("Direct (g", @hspnumtostring(laborAccount)), " a1)"))

@member(@concatenate(@concatenate("Direct (g", @hspnumtostring(laborAccount)), " a2)"))

I have not been able to find a way to create a temporary variable to pass the suffix into my code and then call a script.


Howdy, Stranger!
