    Evaluating a variable as a field name

    Harinder Bakhshi

      Hi,

       

      Another Newbie Question.

       

      I am trying to build up an expression to use a variable to select a field for a graph axis.  (I previously did this using a separate inline table to make the selection but the performance was not good.)

       

      To start with, I have set the variable in the load script thus:

       

      SET vMasking = 'Masked Mean Packet Delay (ms)';

       

      Then I want the graph to select its axis based on the value of the variable, so I want the graph to be the:

       

      Avg[Masked Mean Packet Delay (ms)]

       

      But I want it to take the value from the variable, so I can change that later

       

      I've tried Avg($(vMasking)) among other things, which doesn't work.

       

      Thanks
