ImageWare EpiBuilder has limited this way of entering in the expression, but offers another method for a work around.


To work around this limitation issue.

  1. Define the expression first in the following place Edit> Define Expression
    Ex. [Info1]+[Info2]+[Info3]+[Info4]
  2. Click OK
  3. Layout Properties> Encoding> Field Expression
  4. The drop down now contains [Info1]+[Info2]+[Info3]+[Info4] which could not be entered directly.
