Using parameters instead of literal values in decision table conditions

The standard options for selecting the "cell format" for decision table conditions allow you to input a literal value, such as >5 or <10. What's the best way to write a condition when that value is not known at design time?

 

As an example, suppose we have a customer attempt to charge a purchase on their credit card that exceeds the available credit limit. Both the purchase amount and available credit are only known at runtime. We need a rule that has a condition purchaseAmount < availableCredit, in combination with several other conditions that determine which action to take. The decision tables in Blaze 7.1 do not appear to support this. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!
