 VARA.MULTI variables are not resolved correctly if they are within an "{}" expression if one of the variable names withing the MULTI variable contains "&" variables.

You can use predefined variables to insert values of Variable object in executable objects at runtime. The following Variable name which is composed of the VARA object's name is used:

{ Variable object [, Key [, Column number ]] }

If you use them to assign VARA.MULT's to prompt sets, the results are unpredictable as shown below with three VARA.MULTI prompts.
