Evaluate Field Content

Hi All,

 

Hope someone can help me with this. Have spent hours on it and still not anywhere near a solution.

 

I am trying to evaluate a field but somehow I think I must have missed out something.

 

MyTable::MyField

 

$$Result.

 

The evaluate function I use : Evaluate ((Get(LayoutTableName)&"::MyField"))

 

Assuming the input in My field is 9+9, the evaluate function returns 9+9, which is not what I want. What I want is $$Result to be 18.

 

I have tried to add the quotation marks but it is not working. Also I fiddling around sometimes returns a question mark but not the results I need.

 

However if I were to use the actual table and field  name -  it works just fine. ie. Evaluate(MyTable::MyField) will return the correct result 18.

 

I hope someone can help me see where I go wrong.

 

 

Thanks in advance
