Builder conditions file not recognized

OS: macOS Big Sur version 11.5.2
PsychoPy version: Standalone PsychoPy 2021.2.3 for macOS
Standard Standalone?: Y
What are you trying to achieve?: Nest trial loop within a block loop

What did you try to make it work?: Following a process as seen in Blocks of trials and counterbalancing — PsychoPy v2021.3, I nested a trial loop within a block loop. The block loop uses a conditions file called blockOrder.xlsx, where it specifies the file names for the trials (e.g., tunnel.xlsx) in a column with header condFile. I tried setting the trial Conditions to $condFile, but Builder tells me that no parameter has been set. Not sure where I’m going wrong, any help is appreciated.



That’s a warning not an error. It should work if your variable is set correctly.

I’ve tried re-checking all the spellings, and I’ve even changed the header name (then re-checked again), but nothing seems to solve the warning. Is there a way to refer to the block conditions file directly?

Do you get an error message when you run the experiment. The warning doesn’t need solving.

Sorry, I see what you mean now - yes thank you!
