Comments in map rules

You can add inline comments to map rules. Comments do not affect how map rules are evaluated. A comment may appear anywhere in a rule, as long as it does not separate object names.

A comment is identified with the start characters /*. While the end characters */ can be present, they are not required. If the end characters are not present, everything up to the end of that rule is the comment.

The following map rule has two comments, which are indicated by blue text:

= EXTRACT (Record:Customers /*Extract the Records */, 
State Field:.:Customers = "FL" /* Get only the customers in 
Florida */ )

Using comments for map rules, or portions of map rules, is a convenient way to retain complex and lengthy map rules for future use without deleting them.
