go to post Bryan Lucas · Aug 28, 2018 Name indirection can substitute only a name value. The second SET command in the following example returns an error message because of the context. When evaluating the expression to the right of the equal sign, Caché interprets @var1 as an indirect reference to a variable name, not a numeric value. SET var1 = "5" SET x = @var1*6 You can recast the example to execute correctly as follows: SET var1 = "var2",var2 = 5 SET x = @var1*6 0 0 https://community.intersystems.com/post/syntax-error-objectscript-indirection-usage#comment-105161 go to post Bryan Lucas · Aug 28, 2018 http://docs.intersystems.com/cache20171/csp/docbook/DocBook.UI.Page.cls?KEY=GCOS_operators#GCOS_operators_indirection 0 0 https://community.intersystems.com/post/syntax-error-objectscript-indirection-usage#comment-55651 go to post Bryan Lucas · Mar 8, 2018 This was reported in WRC 895607. 0 0 https://community.intersystems.com/post/instance-down-although-there-process-attached-shared-memory#comment-46121 Followers:Bryan has no followers yet.Following:Bryan has not followed anybody yet.Global Masters badges:Bryan has no Global Masters badges yet.
