Nested Concat

Hi All,

I am using the Concat function to generate a HTML table based on a collection. This is similar to what is being done here. For my application It would be very nice to have a concat funcation nested inside another Concat funcation (similar to having a for loop inside another for loop in C). However Im not sure how to reference the 'Result' of the child Concat.

 

For example:

if we have table a and b below:

Table A Table B
1 a
2 b
3 c



and I try to do this:
Concat( A, concat(B,  "A:" & Result & " B: " & Result & "<br /> ")

I hope to get something like:
A: 1 B:a
A: 1 B:b

A: 1 B:c
A: 2 B:a
A: 2 B:b
A: 2 B:c
A: 3 B:a
A :3 B:b
A :3 B:c


How can i distinguish A.Result from B.Result?? At the moment Result will always reference the result of the parent Concat.

Re: Nested Concat

 

You can use RenameColumns() to rename the Result for either of them.

 

Assuming your formula is already working:

Concat(A, Concat(RenameColumns(B,"Result","Result_B"),  "A:" & Result & " B: " & Result_B & "<br /> ")

The renaming is not permanent and is only scoped to the formula.

 

Let me know if this works for you.
