Overview

Value reference modifiers allow the transformation of the text value returned by a value reference expression by appending them at the end using the > separator:

@value_reference > modifier@

These modifiers are built into Comala Document Management. Also note that Supplier References from the Reporting Add-on use a similar format and offer many more options for data manipulation.
