Dynamic Text conundrum - please help

Hi there

I am trying to do something simple, just doing it wrong:

I have a dynamic text field with the VAR name quotemaker.

I am trying to load the right value into it by doing this

quotemaker = [quote + i];

where quote1, quote2, etc are variables with string values, however all that is returned is “quote1”, not the value i set for quote1.

my brian hurts. help.

thanks for any input!
