AFAIK, commented fields cannot be triggered without un-commenting.

Hi,

Qlik Script inside comments is just a free plain English/WhateverOtherLanguage text for engine, therefore it doesn't recognize fields, keywords or statements.

These is no any way to access something inside comment through Qlik commands.

The only thing you can do - export script to some good text editor and figure out search/replace patterns (depending how exactly your script is commented // or /* */ blocks)

Good luck.
