If i write an expression containing a text variable like:
'Who said ' & %TextVar%
Either in an action or an inline expression:
<# 'Who said ' & %TextVar% #>
Then ADRIFT seems to get the contents of the text variable and insert it directly into the expression giving:
'Who said ' & now is the winter of my discontent
But this causes a "Bad expression error" because there are no quotes around the string.
What it should do is insert the contents of the text variable as a quoted string:
'Who said ' & 'now is the winter of my discontent'
(When inserting into an expression, not when %TextVar% is in text outside of the <# #> symbols)
