I am trying to add a section to our client letter to deal with over contributions to RRSPs. I can’t find a field in TaxCycle that shows the RRSP limit plus the additional $2,000 over-contribution grace amount. I only want the section to show if the accumulated contributions exceed the limit plus $2,000. So I need to do a bit of arithmetic in the template editor.

What is the correct syntax for adding a number to a numeric field?

For example:

I want to add 2,000 to {{CurrentClient.RRSPContributions.PriorYearRRSPLimit.M[10]}}

Can it be done?

I tried

{{CurrentClient.RRSPContributions.PriorYearRRSPLimit.M[10]+2000}}

and

{{sum(CurrentClient.RRSPContributions.PriorYearRRSPLimit.M[10],2000)}}

but had no luck…

The condition I am looking for would be something like:

{{# CurrentClient.RRSPContributions.ClientRRSP.M[6] > CurrentClient.RRSPContributions.PriorYearRRSPLimit.M[10]+2000}}
