Accessing a table within a table

I have a namemap of 

table.firstcell(1,1).table1.secondcell(1,1)

 

  I want to use a project variable to access cells within the second table

When I set the project variable to to the rowindex of the cell  table.firstcell(var1,1)  it works.

If I set the second cell to    table.firstcell(1,1).table1.secondcell(var2,1)  it works.

If I try to do table.firstcell(var1,1).table1.secondcell(var2,1)  it does not find the first cell.

I have tried table.refresh and table.refershmapppingInfo

How can I access using variables multiple rowindexs of a table within a table?

Without knowing how you have defined your name mappings, it's a bit difficult to answer the question. An easier option, in my opinion, is to break the table down, where you can pass in the row and column values.

this is an existing application that has a table and a cell with a table
table
      cell
            table
                  cell
table.cell.table2.cell2
where the cell has a row and column
changing the structure is not an option

Here, I'm showing the name mappings, project variables and code, to highlight the appropriate cell in the example I had given earlier.

The example that I had provided shows you how to use project variables to select a cell in a table (within a table)

 

Again, without knowing how you have defined your name mappings, it will be difficult to answer your exact question
