It is checking the same field on the same pick over and over again, so advCount will either be 0 (if field[advCost] isn't 4) or advcur (if field[advCost] is 4)?
For each of the picks, I wanted it to cycle through the previous picks and determine if the cost field or tag was present, then increment the field. If the advancement costs 4 xp, increment the field. The idea was for the script to cycle through all the picks and increment only for the ones that meet the 4 xp requirement.

If the pick has an advOrder field of 3, it should count picks from 1 to 3 and increment only if the pick has an xp value of 4 xp.

Please do not PM me to inquire about datafiles I coded "for personal use" such as Exalted, World of Darkness, AD&D, or Warhammer 40K Roleplaying. I appreciate your interest, but I do not own the Intellectual Property rights to these game systems. Nor do I have permission from any of the Publishers to distribute the data files. As such, I cannot distribute the work I have done with community on these files. They are "for personal use" only. Thank you.

I am far too busy these days to answer emails. If you message me here there is no guarantee I will get back to you at all.
