This is my set up :

Hello,

Try it like this:

%Listname[Index_Variable]%

View solution in original post

To provide a bit of explanation for @Zave correct answer. When using a variable inside a variable you can use just the name.  One set of '%' signs around the outside will designate that it is a variable.  To use it as text instead of a variable name put singe quotes around the text.  See here in the documentation.
