Chapter 12. Expressions

Table of Contents

Math and combinations

Some configuration sections can use expressions to help the system pick the right action when there are several options available. The expressions themselves are pretty standard fare.

Expression can be comparisons, == equal, > greater than an so on. It can be combined with AND or OR. String, numbers or the content of fields in the current record. There's also a special function called follow that will follow a database link to a new record and updates the current record with a new one.


The current record to be examined is available as variables. Assuming your currently doing something with a cust_entity record, you can write (name2=='Steve') to see if the first name is Steve for example.
