Subject Re: Making Jumps or doing Loops!!
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2001 17:18:43 GMT
  Thanks Don

    just a question.
   When you put the sample of the counter the "."
after the counter means that the value will increment
in one??
   <property name="${counter}." value="whatever" />
  or how do I increment in one the variable value of
my counter?

  Thanks again
VES
