The statement (facta=2) is evaluated as true or false, with true=1 and
When facta eq 2, group = factb + facta*1
= factb + 2
When fact ne 2, group = factb + facta*0

Thanks for your help! I have quick question on the above syntax. My
background in syntax is limited, so I hope this isn't ridiculously
My question is about the expression (facta=2) above. You are
multiplying the value of facta by that expression, but I would expect
either a variable or a value in the ( ), not a "variable=value"
expression. Would you please explain what this syntax does?
