How to use a counter to count the numbers of times loop_2 ran if its inside a loop_1.

Himanshu_PantHimanshu_Pant Member Posts: 46 Contributor I
I have a loop: loop example (loop_21). Inside that I have a simple loop (loop_2 ). I want keep a counter inside loop_2 and append the output. 
For Example: Loop_1 runs three times and loop_2 runs four times. So I want count = 1, count = 2, count = 3, .......upto, count = 12

    Have a look at your loop (Loop 2) operator do you have the box "Enable Parallel Execution" ticked?  This may throw off your counter as the loop will be executing in multiple threads.  If you uncheck this box it will perform one loop and then the next one, this should resolve your issue.

    Hi,
    that's likely because of the parallel execution? Did you try to turn it off?

    Can you just use the macro %{a} which gives you the current execution count of an operator?
