The Let() function and script variables allow you to make intricate code easier to understand, modify, and reuse. Script parameters and results make it possible to create dynamic scripts that can be used in multiple contexts. And we’ll see how designing scripts and calculations to enable “indirection” allows you to write code that can be easily copied from place to place—even from one file to another—and have it work immediately!
