Lookup table creation workflow?

Evan_ReeseEvan_Reese Member Posts: 500 PRO
What's a good workflow to automate the creation of a lookup table without having to type each entry? In a thread I was unable to find again, I remember @kevin_o_toole_1 (I think)
mentioning it could be done in one's "language of choice", but I'm a neophyte with no language of choice. Can someone recommend a language and, maybe an IDE a beginner could use for this? Any rough overview of the workflow steps would also help a ton. Otherwise, I guess I can try hacking it together in a spreadsheet with lots of concatenate functions.

    Thanks @kevin_o_toole_1
    looking through that, it seems like that's not a rabbit hole I'm ready for, at least for this project. I am impatient about getting it to a usable place. I've just updated the table entries manually (194 of them!) with some thoughtful use of the find/replace tool. If detailed lookup tables become more a part of my life, I'll be digging into this. I appreciate you taking the time to find the link and give some pointers!
