The green block row ID corresponds to the column ID in the table. This is a hidden column and you can use it to retrieve data directly from the table or do other checks.

The row number is something the Data Viewer event blocks should have.

Well i cant work this out sorry as my code gets an undefined message on Label 3 but label2 works fine. How do i access a row value and store in a variable?

If you store the green row id block in a variable, you need to use that variable again for the row id in each get value block.

Also, avoid doing this:


Because you’re telling Thunkable to set an app variable called [the value of app variable “xx”] to a value. I think you meant to set the value of app variable xx. There’s already a block for that in the Variables drawer. You don’t need to use the set app variable block that has an empty string " ". But if you do want to use that, just type in xx where you have app variable "xx".

Use this block:

Instead of this one:

yes that worked. thanks i didnt pick this up
