Receive "Index operation failed; the array index evaluated to null. Stack trace: at <ScriptBlock>, <No file>: line 104>" and "Index operation failed; the array index evaluated to null. Stack trace: at <ScriptBlock>, <No file>: line 108>"

Can't make sense of it. This runs fine outside of Adaxes in PS terminal.

Hello Jack,

The issue is caused by the $iRange variable that is equal $NULL instead of digits and used in an array at lines 96 and 100 of your script. As a possible solution here, you can add the following code to display an error in the Execution log and exit from the script in case of $iRange variable being $NULL:

if ($NULL -eq $iRange)
    $Context.LogMessage("Target  JobTitle wasn’t found.", "Error")

If that is not what you need, for us to suggest a solution, please, provide an accurate description of all variables used in the script and how exactly the script should work. Live examples of the desired behaviour will be much appreciated.
