Simple loop script

I need the simple loop syntax to loop through a found set of records and simply add a few characters to each record until the script reaches the end of the found set, then the loop ends. I just need to control the loop with a counter and I have forgotten how to do it.

Help,

Daryl

Off of the top of my head,

Go to Layout [ “YourFile” (Layout1) ] 

Set Field [ g_Field; "" ] 

Go to Record/Request/Page 

       [ First ] 

Loop 

    Set Field [ g_Field; g_Field & "¶" &  " - " &  Field1 &  " - "  & Field2  & "¶" ] 

    Go to Record/Request/Page 

       [ Next; Exit after last ] 

End Loop 

Go to Layout [ “yourFile” (Layout2) ]
