Thread: Variables frustration

    Angry Variables frustration

    Hi all,

    I'm getting mad on PDI variables.

    I just need to set a variable in a job, then after a Trasformation increment it by 100 and then run that Trasformation again for n times.

    So if the flow will run 4 times I expect to have my variable set it to 300 (0, 100, 200, 300).

    I'm using the Set Variable step with this syntax :

    VAR = ${VAR}+100

    What I get at the end is 0 + 100 + 100 + 100...

    How can I achieve this ?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    That's because Variables are strings.

    You would need to process the variable in the Javascript step.
