When writing a comment into a .NOT file, I can display the ID number by
@<field name>, e.g. where the field name is babyid:

*         WRITENOTE "Comments or additional information for baby ID
@babyid" SHOW


I tried doing this with 2 fields (the combination of babyid and wksdate
is unique):

*         WRITENOTE "Comments or additional information for baby ID
@babyid and Week Starting date @wksdate" SHOW

However only the value of wksdate is displayed. How can I display the
values of both fields?


My work around is to create a variable that's a combination of babyid
and wksdate, but I'm wondering if there's a more straightforward way to
do it.
