Allowable entries for the ForEach field in the "For Each" Activity

I’m trying to understand what are the possible values I can enter in the ForEach field in the “For Each” Activity. I have used the following so far in my sample demos.

  • Item
  • Row
  • Col

Is there an exhaustive list of all the possible things I can type into this box?

The Name (e.g. Item, row…) Is a variable Name choosen by you. IT represents the current Item, when iterating over e.g. an Array, list…

The Name is Not triggering a specific Type e.g a datarow, a String from String list … The Datatype of what the (Iteration)Item is, requires to get configured in the settings (ObjectType).

So there is not a predefined list in place triggering a Type by Name. All is configured as mentioned above.

Let us know If you have more Open questions on this

Hi @lrferns

Item is fine ,But it depends if you have something you need to iterate and if you want to be descriptive you can do so !

Hi, @ lrferns,

you can use most of you whant for exemple i have a workflow where i use

ForEach --> Sheet
In --> “C:/…/2019_Test.xlsx”

You can use
ForEach --> File

Most of what you use day by day in a computer can be used here
