Lookup a collection

Hello all,

 

I have a collection that holds up to at least 10 records, i need to lookup a row and grab a data from one column of that row and store it into a variable. This is possible with First and Last, but how do i get records that are the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc..

 

Thanks

To get a value from the 2nd row of a collection and store it in a variable you would do this

Set(myVariable, Last(FirstN(your_collection_name, 2)).your_fieldname)

 

To get a value from the 5th row of a collection and store it in a variable you would do this

Set(myVariable, Last(FirstN(your_collection_name, 5)).your_fieldname)
