3.5.1.7.16 NameOf

Get the actual internal dataset name from a range string. This function is implemented for range that can be resolved to a worksheet column only.

To get the name of a range object like layer, page or column, you can use the obj.name$ property.


Function Form:

Nameof(rangeStr)$


Examples:

The following script displays internal dataset names of all columns in the current sheet.

loop(i,1,wks.ncols) { 
    %A=nameof(!wcol(i))$; 
    %A=; 
}

For example, this script may return the result like below:

	Book1_AA@2
	Book1_BB@2

You can also use this for a range variable, like

range a=1,b=2;
nameof(a)$=;
nameof(b)$=;

Book1_A
Book1_B
