            I put this in a ticket…But here it is for reference if it helpful:

            This used to work:

            %%ar = array();

            foreach(%%ar as %%record)
            %%val = sgapiGetValue(%%record[1]);

            Now it no longer does…This is what is required:

            foreach(%%ar as %%key => %%value)
            %%qid = %%value[1];
            %%val = sgapiGetValue(%%qid);


            Some example scripts don’t work:

            %%format = “Y-m-d H:i:s”;
            %%output .= sgapiDate(%%format);

            The above causes an script syntax error. Switching the variable name %%format to %%fformat allows the script to work.
