Syntax

eval(string)

Description

Evaluates a calculation expressed as a character string and returns the result.

For example, if lVar2 contains the string '3*4/2', eval(lVar2) returns the result 6. You should use this function with extreme care because a runtime error will occur if the string is not a valid calculation. You can use the Test for valid calculation command to test a string before attempting to evaluate it.

Example

Calculate lVar2 as '3*lVar1/15.5'
Test for valid calculation {eval(lVar2)}
If flag true
  Calculate lTax as eval(lVar2)
End If
