Default group numbering script?

I need to write a script that will return a "group number" for 15 records, then add 1 to the number and return for another 15 records, etc, etc? The specified number is NOT in our data file, so it can't pull from there.


ID______ GROUP____
RW10000 1001
RW10001 1001
RW10002 1001
RW10003 1001

RW10004 1001
RW10005 1001
RW10006 1001
RW10007 1001

RW10008 1001
RW10009 1001
RW10010 1001
RW10011 1001

RW10012 1001
RW10013 1001
RW10014 1001
RW10015 1002

RW10016 1002
RW10017 1002
RW10018 1002
RW10019 1002

RW10020 1002
RW10021 1002
RW10022 1002
RW10023 1002

RW10024 1002
RW10025 1002
RW10026 1002
RW10027 1002

RW10028 1002
RW10029 1002
RW10030 1002

I was going to try to add the group number in the data file, but I can't find a way to do that for 12,000 records that isn't extremely tedious and takes forever.

Default Re: group numbering script?

Assuming you're setting the Start and End record numbers on the Input tab of the Composition Settings, those are the "IDs", and this should get you the "Groups":
var ID = FusionPro.Composition.inputRecordNumber;
var Group = Int((ID - 10000) / 15) + 1001;
return Group;

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
