Does anyone know how to use variable inside SET statement? Here is an example which does not work:

set {d1, 4}
set {d2, d1 - 1}
set {d1h, high d2 days ago}

If you add columns for d1 and d2 you'll see variables do work inside SF set statements.

However, in SF for most commands like "days ago" you can't use variables instead of integers, whether or not that command is inside a set statement or not; which is why your third line doesn't work.

Hope this helps,
