set_operator ::= + | - | * | /

set_modifier ::= < field_selection {, field_selection } >

field_selection ::= field_name [ = | += | –= | *= | /= ] element_set_expression

element_set_expression ::= element_set { set_operator element_set }

element_set ::= [ field_name ] | { element_list } | element_function
