Some Work Query command parameters can accept a source of either a Work Query Field name or a text literal. Text literals in these cases are prefixed with a backtick ` character.
These commands take the source parameter value as a string, and that string could contain any one of the following:
What you pass to this parameter can come from a text literal in double quotes, or it could come from a Top Query field name (with or without a leading ` to be prepended), or it could come from an expression that is solved in the context of the Top Query .
The complete list of possibilities includes:
The backtick is only applicable when a MOX command is:
Most MOX commands don’t use the backtick, but the Build, Text, and most variations of Set that do use them are commonly used themselves. The complete list of commands that use this syntax are:
|Images||Destination, Source, Value|
|LookUp||Table, Alias, Field|
|Parse||Source, Delimiter, Value|
|SendEmail||From, To, Subject, AttachPath, AttachName, Body|
|SetIf||Source, Left, Right|
This is a comprehensive example for demonstration of syntax only. What it does is not something that should be deemed useful or typical as-is
