Multiple variables at once

Multiple variables at once

Postby Rukbunker » Thu Sep 02, 2021 11:46 am

Hey Oleg,

There are similar topics here which all partly answer my question, hence this specific topic.
We have a task coming up (as a pilot) which should declare some variables at once. The input is a CSV (or similar). For every line in the CSV, Robotask should do something. (Yes, the loop comes in here ;))

The CSV looks like:

Code: Select all
Customernumber,CustomerName,Mail
000001,Robotask,info@dummymail.hay
000052,YankyDoodle,dontwrite@mail.co.uk.br.tr


With every loop, I want to declare the values per line all at once to different variables.

What is your best approach?

Look at examples below

The simplest way to set each element to separate variable from comma-separate string

Many thanks for cooperating!

However, I see the variables in your script are separated by a space and not a comma or semicolon, or do I miss something?

...I see the variables in your script are separated by a space and not a comma or semicolon,...

Where? Maybe I don't understand you...
Explain in more details, please

It spits out the variables divided by a space, not a "," or a ";"

You gave me CSV text wit COMMA separated lines
The CSV looks like:

Code: Select all
Customernumber,CustomerName,Mail
000001,Robotask,info@dummymail.hay
000052,YankyDoodle,dontwrite@mail.co.uk.br.tr


Also pay attention that strings with spaces or commas "," must be quoted in standard comma-separated string. Like this:
Code: Select all
123456,"Customer with spaces",robotask@robotask.com


Look at new example below. I added Split text action to convert line to standard comma-separated line
Code: Select all
