convert mathematical equations stored as text into the mathematical answer within m


 I have a simple equation stored as text. Is there a straight forward manner in which I can convert this to the mathematical answer, instead of splitting the colums by the + delimeter, storing the split mumers as a numer and then creating a new colun to get what I want?

Expression.Evaluate  with the column should do it

soz hotchilli, but as a newbie to m i still can't get my head around it. Here is the query i have. It's gone through a number of steps to get to the below. How do I use Expression.Evaluate against the whole query, which for the sake of simplicity is called #"Nearly There".  I want to Evaluate the entire column Entry Fee. Thanks in advance
