How not to replace the variable

e.g. I have two script lines:

....;

set fSel_1=(COEP.GJAHR='$(vYr_1)' AND COEP.VERSN='$(vVersion_1)' AND COEP.WRTTP='01');

set fPlanJahr =Sum (if($(fSel_1),COEP.WKGBTR,0));

.....;

and I want the string as it is "Sum (if($(fSel_1),COEP.WKGBTR,0))" for fPlanJahr

but QV replaces $(fSel_1) by the variable content of fSel_1

How can I force QV to handle the right side as a string without replacing?

Why? Because vYr_1 and vVersion_1 shall be changed by user input and the variables-hierarchy shall be interpreted during interactive reporting.

When using the variable editor it works fine, when creating them by script i miss the solution.

I tried

set xxx = [Sum (if($(fSel_1),COEP.WKGBTR,0))];

set xxx = "Sum (if($(fSel_1),COEP.WKGBTR,0));";

best regards Eckhard

How not to replace the variable

Hi Eckhard,

try something like

set fSel_1=(COEP.GJAHR='$(vYr_1)' AND COEP.VERSN='$(vVersion_1)' AND COEP.WRTTP='01');

let fPlanJahr ='Sum (if('&chr(36)&'(fSel_1),COEP.WKGBTR,0))';

Regards,

Stefan

How not to replace the variable

Another option is to use a different character to denote the variable and replace the character with the dollar sign. For example:

SET fSel_1=(COEP.GJAHR='@(vYr_1)' AND COEP.VERSN='@(vVersion_1)' AND COEP.WRTTP='01');

LET fSel_1=replace(fSel_1, '@', '$');

I find that this is more readable especially you have many variables were you don't want the dollar-sign expansion to occur.

How not to replace the variable

Hi, bothe helped me.

In the end I have something like

// , replaces Komma

// " replaces '

// [ replaces (

// ] replaces )

The resulting code is:

set fMonSel_1=[$[fSel_1] AND COEP.PERIO="$[SelPERIO]"];

let fMonSel_1=replace(replace(replace('$(fMonSel_1)',']',')'),'[','('),'"',chr(39));

Its not fine but the only way i found in a deep hierarchy of formula
