Referencing lists within lists

Since the inner list is different onl each line of the outer list, the line number needs to be included:

Set reference lvRef2 to iList.<line>.QtyList      ;; Substitute a valid line number for <line> - or a variable containing a valid line number in square brackets

Also note that the $ref isn't necessary here. The "Set reference" command only needs a target, to which it creates a reference.
