If i have a variable with a value (say VAR = 10), can i use it in INCLUDE COND to get value that are equal to (VAR+5)?

How difficult is it to look in your manual, and to just try it?

I'm not even sure what you are asking. Can you show sample input and expected result?

Input file:
15
15
15

Value of VAR:10


I want to fetch data from input file using VAR.

Do we have something like
INCLUDE COND=(1:2,zd,eq,(var+5))

And where does VAR exist? Why can't you just add five to it? Also, note that 1:2 is not valid, you mean 1,2?

Well, I'd suggest you make another symbol/SYMNAME which is VAR (I hope that that is a meaningful name) plus five and use that.
