The ADD function adds a specified value to the score of a domain in a specified set.
The ADD function changes the value of Score in the hidden results table.

For example, if a set variable workingSet has these contents from the sample taxonomy in the introduction:

1.01    martial art
    1.01.1  aikido
1.07    golf

and the hidden results table is the one in the introduction, then this statement:

ADD(workingSet, "1.07", 10);

will add ten points to the score of domain 1.07 (10) that will become 20.

Since the only domains with a score are those listed in the hidden results table, only domains with a matching entry in that table are affected.

The syntax is:

ADD(set, domain, number)


  • set is a set variable.
  • domain is the domain name or ID.
  • number is the number to add. It can be an integer or a decimal value.
