View Macro each iteration Result

Hi All,

 

Did you all experience when building a iterate macro this situation?

 

When you have no idea why the output is different from what you want,

hence, you remove the rows/ data to force the data run only 2 iterate, review the result.

then, you add back the rows/ data to force the data run only 3 iterate, review the result 

then 4, 5 and etc... until we found the issue.

 

so it was important that we can view how the result of each iterate to enable us to identify the issue quicker and more efficient.

 

Example output

The output may like below: (with a option to let user to choose of cause)

 

if input data is 3 and the macro is to multiply 2 and power of 2 every iterate. (1st iterate=3*2^2, 2nd iterate=12*2^2)

IterateAmount
112
248

 

just add one column in front to show the iterate and rest is the result.
