Similar to mathematics, parenthesis alone can change the value of an expression. Understanding how parenthesis effect the evaluation of a logical expression allows complex logic to be implemented that might not be otherwise possible.
- Simple stated: expressions within parenthesis are evaluated first; and then their results are applied to the overall expression.
- The parenthesis dialog allows any number of parenthesis to be added to each logical condition.
- The parenthesis do not need to be balanced for each condition, but they must be balanced for the entire Logical expression.
- Balanced parenthesis means the number of open parenthesis is equal to the number of close parenthesis.
- NOTE: Unbalanced parenthesis will cause syntax errors.
