6. How do you add two different variable types and perform the addition operation within a final variable using the Generic Variable type?

About GenericValue variable

  1. GenericValue variable is a type of variable that can store any kind of data, including text, numbers, dates, and arrays. This type is mainly used in activities in which we aren’t sure what type of data we’ll receive.
  2. GenericValue variables are automatically converted to other types, to perform certain actions.
  3. Please note that the first element in your expression is used as a guideline for what operation
    Studio performs.

How GenericValue variable work?

When you try to add two GenericValue variables, if the first one in the expression is defined as a String, the result is the concatenation of the two.
Ex: Var1=”10” and Var2=6 (Both are of type GenericValue)
Var1+Var2=106 (Concatenates 10 and 6 and gives 106)
If it is defined as an Integer, the result is their sum.
Ex: Var1=9 and Var2=”3” (Both are of type GenericValue)
Var1+Var2=12 (Sum’s 9 and 3 and gives 12)

Continuing with the Data Table setup, employ the “Add Data Column” activity to include another column known as Column3.
Cloumn Name: Assign a header to Column3, for example, "Class” To Data Table: Specify the DataTable variable, which in our case is dt_StudentData.
Step5:
Now, utilize the “Add Data Row” activity to insert data into the first row, representing Student1.
Data Table: Specify the Data Table variable, ‘dt_StudentData’.
Array Row: Click on + and select Collection builder
In the Collection Builder panel, click “Add” and provide data for all columns. Repeat this step for each column value.
Step6:
Continue by using the “Add Data Row” activity to add data to the second row, representing Student2.
Data Table: Specify the Data Table variable, ‘dt_StudentData’.
Array Row: Click on + and select Collection builder
In the Collection Builder panel, click “Add” and provide data for all columns. Repeat this process for each column value.
Step7:
Proceed with the “Add Data Row” activity to add data to the third row, representing Student3.
Data Table: Specify the DataTable variable, ‘dt_StudentData’.
Array Row: Click on + and select Collection builder
In the Collection Builder panel, click “Add” and provide data for all columns. Repeat this procedure for each column value.
Step8:
Proceed with the “Add Data Row” activity to add data to the fourth row, representing Student4.
Data Table: Specify the DataTable variable, which in our case is dt_StudentData.
Array Row: Click on + and select Collection builder
In Collection builder panel click on Add and data for all Columns. Click on Add for every column
value.
Step9:
Lastly, use the “Add Write Range (Google Workspace)” activity to write the data from the Data Table into the spreadsheet (Ex: StudentData) available in your Google Drive
Google sheets: select workspace (ex: Yourmail@gmail.com)
Spreadsheet: Choose the Google Spreadsheet available in your Google Drive.
Range: specify the sheet (Ex: sheet1)
What to write: Specify the DataTable variable, which in our case is dt_StudentData.
Step10:
