Question Calculating the range of a secondary particle

I am in need of calculating the range of a secondary particle. I am using TestEm1 as a base example that I am modifying in order to meet this goal. TestEm1 calculates the range and compares this simulated range to the csda range of the primary particle. I am in need of changing the code in order to allow these calculations to executed on the secondary particles. I am modeling a positron emitting point source as the primary particle and it emits positrons with a Track ID of 4 and a Parent ID of 1. Is there a way that I can alter the code to allow the range calculations to be performed on a different Track ID?

Thanks, Matthew Middione
