Is there a way to comment an expression in Spotfire

Hi, not following: if I have a long expression like the following....with many complex Case statements....

COMMENT explaining Case Statement 1

Case statement 1

COMMENT explaining Case Statement 2

Case statement 2

and so on....through Case Statement 100....

How do I create these COMMENTS without breaking the expression

If your goal is to document the backend of the case statement in such a way that the data is unaffected and the rendering time is not negatively impacted then all you need is a when clause that is never true.

Ex:WHEN 1=2 THEN "----------------COMMENT--- BEGINNING NEXT LOGICAL BLOCK-----------------"

This still gives a visual break in the expression so that the comment is visible.
