Look at this:
\DTLgetvalueforkey{\tabledescriptionstring}{c2}{installationshandbuch}{c1}{\select}% search Value!
This will select a row and take the right argument.

Is there any Way to select a column to search the rows?

Best regards



No mwe.tex


I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with those terms. The only lookup commands available are those listed in the "Advanced Database Commands" section of the user manual. TeX isn't a database language. The data is stored in a particular way that allows easy row access (by row index), but the column access is harder.
