Total for consegutive variables


smile Mar 24, 2020 08:01 AM

Hi to All,

maybe it's a simple thing, but it just doesn't come to mind.

I have 25 variables with the same name, for example "public var (25)"

How can I get a variable that is the total of some consecutive of them? for example:

  total5 = var1 + var2 + var3 + var4 + var5
or
total23 = var1 + var2 + var3 + ............ var23

Thanks

Regards

To simplify it, you can use a loop to do the math.

 

Public ValuesToTotal As Long
Public Result
Public var(25)

Dim i As Long


'Main Program
BeginProg
  Scan (1,Sec,0,0)

    Result = 0
    For i = 1 To ValuesToTotal
      Result += var(i)
    Next i

  NextScan
EndProg

Hi JDavis many thanks for reply.

I did not understand very well, but your example has stimulated my imagination ;-)

I still have to do a test, but it might work. I have to try like this:

For n=1 To 25

Total(n)=0

For i=1 To n
Total(n)=Total(n)+VAR(i)
next i
next n

........

what I may not have explained well, is that there are as many totals, as many as the VARs.
