function(doc) {

If x is "x" or "x123" etc its fine but

if x is "2v2" or "5abcd" etc.. i get the "Expression does not eval to a
function." error. Any ideas?

If you mean that you’re literally writing “doc.2v2”, that’s not legal JavaScript,
so you’re getting a syntax error.
Use “doc[‘2v2’]” instead; it’s equivalent.
