Origin 2019 (64-bit) (Behörde)

Hello everybody,

I am learning at the moment how to program simple scripts with LabTalk in Origin 2019. My aim at the moment is, to create a row of different line-diagrams with 2 column-datasets in it. The first column should be fixed, the second column should go from col(83) col(end). In each created diagram, the x-values should be rotated 45° and the x-unit should be deleted. The Y-Units should be changed to the text that is the columns unit.

I created the following loop for this, but there is an error when I execute it:

loop (ii, 83, 108) {plotxy iy:=((1,2),(1,$(ii))) plot:=200
xb.text$ = ""
yl.text$ = %(?Y, @LU);};

If I only execute the first line:
loop (ii, 83, 108) {plotxy iy:=((1,2),(1,$(ii)) plot:=200);};

i get the following error:

plotxy:X-Function failed to execute!
Bad argument, iy:=
((1,2),(1,83) plot:=200)
#Command Error!

Can someone help me here? I know this is probably a simple question, but as I said, I am an absolute beginner.

THank you!

You put the bracket at a wrong position. It should be:
plotxy iy:=((1,2),(1,$(ii))) plot:=200;

However, even though we correct the bracket position, the script:
loop (ii, 83, 108) { plotxy iy:=((1,2),(1,$(ii))) plot:=200};

means to loop over from 83 to 108 to plot col(1) & col(2) and col(1) & col(i) as a line plot

This might not you want. You could take a look at this page to find more info about how to define the input range:
