Is it possible to add a comment to an expression used in a Filter or Formula?
Yes, once you have a valid expression, just use // followed by your comment on the next line.
/* you can also
add blocks of comments
into the formula */
i use use this technique when I comment out old code in place of new code.
That is very useful. Thank you!
Thanks for posting this. I will be using this in documenting and testing workflows.
You don't need to go to the next line.
You thus have 2 ways:
- comment in line with // : anything after this on this line is commented
you can use it to place in comment a full line or comment at the end of a line
- comment by block with /* your comment */ : anything in between this is commented, whether it's on the same line or not.
you can use it to comment several lines at a time, or just a portion of a line (in that case, be careful about content in quotes, plus it's not very readable)
