Re: DATA question

PREVAR is interesting and would sort-of work right. However, the VAR is global and could be modified by something else. But it creates a weird effect when editing an entry that is not the last one. i.e. user has #1 through #10 already added and then discovers there was a mistake for #3. So removes #3 to make a change. With an incremented VAR implementation it would decrement the VAR which would make #10 invalid instead of #4. If each # ability had it’s own VAR or ABILITY tag with a hidden ability to PREABILITY on it increases memory usage.

 

I tried doing this with PREABILITY but either I have something wrong, or PREABILITY cannot determine if an ability with an unspecified CHOOSE has been selected.

Have each ability have a PREVAR check, and have the appropriate prior ability increment the var?
