    Hey I'm looking to create a numbered incremental variable,

    and be able to use those variables depending on what number is being created in a loop. kinda hard to explain.....but....

    var1 = 123
    var2 = 456
    var3 = 789
    var4 = 012

    x = 1
    display var(x) (so that depending on what x is I'd display var1 or var2 or...)
    end repeat

    is the jist of it does that make sense to anyone? I can't seem to find the answer after a fair amount of digging around.... thanks for your guidance!! for an applescript noob....

    Use an array.

    If you don't know what an array is, then identify which programming language you're using, and we can give more specific information. I can't tell what the programming language is from what you posted. It might be AppleScript, but I'm just guessing.

    I'm using applescript, yes the above "code" wasn't code per-say, just an outline of what I was looking to do......:)

    In AppleScript, an array is called a list.

    Google search terms like these:
    applescript array tutorial
    applescript list tutorial
    applescript list examples
    applescript arrays
    applescript lists
    Or look up the word "list" in an AppleScript reference book.
