Does anyone know why the following code would not work inside a module?
list = AppendTo[list, data];

here's the exact code
splitData[data_, list_, i_] := Module[{},
Print["In Split Data ", i];

If[data[[i,1]]==1, list = AppendTo[list, data[[i, 2]]]];
Print["Length of list is: ", Length[list]];

which is called by:
Do[splitData[data, list, i], {i, 1, Length[data]}]

It complains about to many recursions, yet on the command line alone,
list = AppendTo[list, data];
works just fine?
