Column Tabular Chunk


col[umn] <integer1> [to <integer2>]
{of | in} <pickList | dataSheet> the <ordinal> col[umn] {of | in} <pickList | dataSheet> Applies to datasheets, picklists


The column chunk yields all of the values in a particular column or range of columns in a pickList or dataSheet. In the returned value, each row is delimited by returns; each column is delimited by tabs. You can use the colDelim and rowDelim properties to specify the character to be used as a column or row delimiter, respectively, for data imported into a pickList or dataSheet. Attention: You can use a combination of text and tabular chunk expressions to retrieve values, but not to insert values into containers.


You can specify chunks of chunks: row 1 of col 1 of pickList "Movies" You can also specify ranges of chunks: col 1 to 2 of pickList "Movies" You can use text chunk expressions with tabular chunk expressions by enclosing the tabular chunk expression in parentheses, as in the following example:
