The Purpose

Allows for finding a value at the same index position across arrays, which is useful if you have multiple lists.

An Example

A1 | A2
A | X
B | Y
C | Z

How to Configure

 

Copy the Code

var A1 = inputData.A1.trim().split(','); // Array1
var A2 = inputData.A2.trim().split(','); // Array2
var Find = inputData.Find; // Find this value in Array1
var Index = A1.indexOf(Find); // Finds value in Array 1
var Lookup = A2[Index]; // Finds matching value at same index position in Array 2

output = [{Index, Find, Lookup, A1, A2}];

The Results
