module validation(test_input);
input [15:0]test_input;
reg [7:0]test_in;
integer k;


test_in[7:0]=test_input[7+k:k];//Range must be bounded by constant 

The code is partial with the same idea. The value of k changes in the 
original code with maximum k value=7 (not shown here). At each change in 
k, I need to copy [k+7:k] bits of test_input to test_in.

when k=1
when k=4

ERROR:Range must be bounded by constant expressions.

I need to copy 8 bits from 'test_input' to test_in.If variable is not 
allowed then, what is the solution.

Please start a new thread for a new question. Add as much information as 
possible and add a useful question, at least WHAT error you want to get 
rid off.

And: attach Verilog files with *.v extension.
