Extract Data from Polyline in a Macro (Tecplot)
 
Hi Guys

I am trying to extract a number of points from a couple of polylines.

The idea is to get the data and compare it to an experimental microphone array.

This has to be done via macro as I have 1024 DES-timesteps.

The macro works fine, however it does not give me the correct coordinates

I attached the relevant part of the macro below (the line breaks are as they should be, the forum here seems to cut them out)

Any comment would be appreciated
