Hi Dmitry,
A very helpful tutorial.
I have one doubt. When we are selecting "update value on each iteration" and no of iterations is greater then no of records in the file. While executing this in the iteration 2 and 3 the value of city is Havana and in the iteration 5 and 6 value is Rom. Even though update value on each iteration is on the next value is same for the mentioned iteration.
Is it because we are selecting the no of iterations > no of records of the file. Please explain.

Thanks,
Priyesh

Hey Dmitri...good job once again on these videos... I have a question similar to the one above...on Update Value on Each Occurrence, we see that within an iteration, the city is repeating....(when you set the number of iterations to 12 in the end). Could you please let me know why this happens ? My understanding was that the city should change on each occurrence within an iteration.

2Pintu,
Random is random.
All combinations are possible :)
