Trying to Create an ARRAY TRIPLICATING DATA

Trying to Create an ARRAY TRIPLICATING DATA

Trying to Create an ARRAY TRIPLICATING DATA

(OP)
I have this ARRAY, but it is triplicating the results. Suggestions are appreciated.

WhileReadingRecords;

Global NumberVar qty;
qty := qty + 1;

Global StringVar serialNumbers;

// split the string into array of lines
Local StringVar Array TempArray := Split( Trim({Job.Note_Text}), Chr(10) );

Local NumberVar i;
Local BooleanVar foundSN := false; // indicates whether we found Serial Number or Heat Code in string
Local StringVar tempString;

For i := 1 To UBound(TempArray) Do
(
tempString := Trim(TempArray[i]);

If foundSN Then
(
If Len(tempString) > 0 Then
(
Local NumberVar pos := InStr(tempString, " ");


If pos > 0 Then
(
serialNumbers := serialNumbers & tempString[1 to pos - 1] & ", ";
serialNumbers := serialNumbers & cdTrimNewLine(Trim(tempString[pos to Len(tempString)])) & "; ";
Exit For;
)
Else
(
serialNumbers := serialNumbers & tempString & "; ";
Exit For;
)
)
)
Else
(

If InStr(tempString, "Serial Number") > 0 Then
(

foundSN := true;
)
)
);

RE: Trying to Create an ARRAY TRIPLICATING DATA

You might have more luck getting a response if you provide a sample of the text you are working with and then show what kinds of results you are trying to achieve with your formula. Maybe also show (for the same sample) the results you ARE getting.
