In order to use edit codes in the way you want you must use the %EditC (or the
%EditW) built-in functions.  They work just as they do on O specs but let you
handle the result as a string.  The example below should give you an idea:

Eval    Text = 'Your balance of ' + &Trim(%EditC(Balance:A:CurSym))
                 + ' is now seriously overdue'
