Dear all,
I should increase the numbering in my variable names by a certain value (eg 55)
Eg: r1, r2, r3, r4, r5... should read r56, r57, r58, r59, r60...

Hope somebody can help.
Thanks in advance,
Andri

Betreff: Creating single characters from long strings

Dear all,
I should create single characters from very long strings (ie around 500 characters).
My original variable abcdefg... should be transformed to:
variable_1: a, variable_2: b, variable_3: c, variable_4: d and so on...

I assume it should be done by combining the substring and foreach command.

Hope that someone can help,

Thanks in advance
Andri
