Macro Express automatically defines string (text) variable "T" as an array with 99 items.

So you would enter %T% in the ASCII Begin Process command. 

But in your Text Type command, you must specify

%T[1]%

%T[2]%

%T[3]%

%T[4]%

and so on -- brackets around the number.

 

It's possible your macro IS reading the CSV file correctly, but it's just the Text Type command that's wrong.

rberg is right. 

Also when I open a new macro file I immediately delete the 4 standard variables. It's a holdover from ME3 and I feel one should meaningfully name their variables. Also only make them array variables when an array is needed.

Thank you, I did not know they where hold overs. I would also agree with you on the naming of the variables.
