Hi all, I’ve been stuck on this issue for a few days now. I’m sure the answer is probably something obvious but I can’t quite figure out what I’m doing wrong!
PsychoPy version: 3.0.6
**Standard Standalone?: yes
What are you trying to achieve?: I am trying to run a staircase procedure where a summary excel file is produced containing the reversal points.
What did you try to make it work?:
I have created my own staircase procedure experiment in Builder which produces an error after the staircase has terminated. To check it wasn’t due to the way I had built the experiment I downloaded and ran the staircase procedure experiment included in the demo pack. I have also tried using different versions of Psychopy bot (Psychopy 2 and Psychopy 3). All of these things have produced the same error each time (see below).
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
The staircase procedure runs as expected. Once the staircase terminates it is able to save the trial-by-trial csv file, log file and psydat file. However, it produces an error when trying to save the excel summary file:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/lpxhb4/Desktop/PsychoPy3 Demos/psychophysicsStaircase/psychophysicsStaircase_lastrun.py", line 302, in <module> trials.saveAsExcel(filename + '.xlsx', sheetName='trials') File "/Applications/PsychoPy3.app/Contents/Resources/lib/python3.6/psychopy/data/staircase.py", line 639, in saveAsExcel ws.cell(column=startingCol, row=1, NameError: name 'startingCol' is not defined
