    How to evaluate a variable to a field in an expression

    James Shenton

      I'm sure there's a straightforward answer to this, but I can't find it I'm afraid.

       

      I want to include a variable field in a chart expression.

       

      e.g. suppose the expression is sum( {$<Product = {}>} Sales). It's the Product bit that I want to vary.

       

      So what I want to do is something like sum( {$<field(vVariable) = {}>} Sales), so that by changing vVariable, the expression uses a different field.

       

      I can't seem to evaluate the variable to become an actual reference to a field, if you see what I mean. Can this be done?

       

      Thanks as always

      James
