Expressions are used in certain Workflows to resolve dynamic data at runtime. Expressions can include functions, variables, constants, and operators. EFT Server reads the text found between percentage signs and then replaces the expression (including the percentage signs) at runtime. For example, the expression %USER.LOGIN% is replaced with the user logon name.

On the main menu, click Tools > Expression Builder.
In an entity's properties dialog box, on the General tab, click the Expression Builder icon .
The Expression Builder appears.
In the left pane, click the folder to view its contents in the right pane.
In the right pane, do one of the following to add the item to the expression:
Double-click the item.
Right-click the item, then click Add.
The item appears in the text box above.
If necessary, click the operators under the box, +, -, *, /, &, <, <=, =, <>, >=, >, and add more items to the Expression.
Click Test to verify the expression was built correctly.
Click Insert to add the Expression to the Workflow or Variable.
