I have various scans based on percentage moves. I would like to be able to adjust the default values via an outside value. For example, I might decide after a 3% down move in the market I want 3% more than my default values. I thought I could create a varaiable (eg PCTAdj) and then use that variable in a set statement (eg Set {AA, .97 - PCTAdj}), but doesn't seem to work (debug reports a syntax error). Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong, an alternative approach, or that it is simply undoable.

Fetcher[
Set {PCTAdj, .03}

Set{var1, .97 - PCTAdj}

add column var1

/* change .03 to what you need */

I guess I wasn't clear (won't be the first time :). Let's say I have 3 scans, looking for down moves of 3%, 5% and 7%. Rather than changing each scan, I am looking to have a global variable so I can make one change that affects each scan. For instance, if I decide each one needs an additional 1% move, I would want to make a global variable equal to .01 that would be accessible to each of the scans so they would become 4%, 6%, and 8%. Changing 3 scans is no big deal, but what about 10 scans? 20 scans?

Familiar already. Was there something specific helpful?

Maybe somebody else can try what I have tried. Establish a variable (eg A = 1) in the settings and then try to reference it in a set statement in a filter (eg Set{B, A})--I get a syntax error.

Yes, that produces results, the universe. But if you look at debug you should see a syntax error, at least I do. It is not working as expected.

Yes
Errors show in debug
