Thanks for the response.
As I noted earlier, running a loop will not work for the particular script I am running, since it creates new elements and these will get lost with each iteration. (Zero Touch.)
I already set the excel sheet not to open, and it seemed to run just fine. I can’t really say, because once I realized that newly created elements wouldn’t work, I immediately abandoned the idea for the purpose of what was initially intended. (Nothing like having an exciting concept at 10:00 in the evening, only to find that it isn’t that brilliant at 12:30 in the morning.)
In any case, there might be some use for it in the future, as I’ve run into dynamo’s resource-intensive computing limits for large data-sets…especially once I start drilling down into the model, or running nodes which deal with lots of geometry.
Basically, I’ve run into issues in the past where I could only run (for example) 100 items at a time. The method used for this was to have a parameter to filter at the front-end (front-end filter) of the script, run the next 100 items, and set the front-end-filter in order to grab the next 100 items. This worked fine and well, but I had to literally click run 10, 20, 30 times just to get through my list.
Anyways. The “issue” is solved for now…I will have to re-structure my list to filter levels and propogate them through my script. The idea was to keep the existing script as it currently exists, and just filter through the levels, since the original intention was to run the script level-by-level.
