Horizontal expansion functions

Horizontal expansion functions

Use a horizontal expansion function to create an expression in an expression macro.
Horizontal expansion functions use the following naming convention: %OPR_<function_type>%. Horizontal expansion functions use square brackets ([ ]) instead of parentheses.
In the Field Expression dialog box, the functions appear in the Horizontal Expansion group of the functions list.
You can use the following horizontal expansion functions:
%OPR_CONCAT%
Uses the CONCAT function and expands an expression in an expression macro to concatenate multiple fields. %OPR_CONCAT% creates calculations similar to the following expression:
FieldA || FieldB || FieldC...
%OPR_CONCATDELIM%
Uses the CONCAT function and expands an expression in an expression macro to concatenate multiple fields, and adds a comma delimiter. %OPR_CONCATDELIM% creates calculations similar to the following expression:
FieldA || ", " || FieldB || ", " || FieldC...
%OPR_IIF%
Uses the IIF function and expands an expression in an expression macro to evaluate a set of IIF statements. %OPR_IIF% creates calculations similar to the following expression:
IIF(<field> >= <constantA>, <constant1>, IIF(<field> >= <constantB>, <constant2>, IIF(<field> >= <constantC>, <constant3>, 'out of range')))
%OPR_SUM%
Uses the SUM function and expands an expression in an expression macro to return the sum of all fields. %OPR_SUM% creates calculations similar to the following expression:
FieldA + FieldB + FieldC...
