Add or concatenate variables

Hi. Is there presently a way to either add two numeric variables, e.g.:

z = [x] + [y]

or concatenate two string variables, e.g.:

z = [x] || [y]

I'm basically trying to take the contents of two existing variables and combine them into a third one.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Bill

BTW: You've done a great job setting up this platform as a much-needed replacement for Stringify. Appreciate the effort you have put in, including the May update, which was really a big improvement.

Hi Bill, I'm glad you're finding the service useful.

Although a little awkward, the best way to add two variables at the moment would be to use two change variable steps as follows:

  1. Change z =x
  2. Change z +y
Initially z will be set to x, then y will be added to it giving the value you're after.
In terms of concatenating two strings there is currently no way to do this, however I have added it to my todo list. I have a number of updates planned in June and will include this in those updates.

Thank you very much Derek for the quick response. That makes perfect sense and works for me. String concatenation was only something I was considering if the math could not be done. Concatenation is not a requirement.

Hi Bill, no worries. Concatenation might be useful for others so I'll keep it on my list but might move it down a bit in terms of priority.

Let me know if you need anything else.
