Aha CMD! It's a shame. It worked better from (at least) v8 up to v20.
 
I cannot think of any reason to use the tortured SET /A syntax if you're *not* using CMD.

It saves a lot of typing (which I'm not good at) especially when the expression that must be repeated on the right side is complicated.
Code:
set /a a[%i,%j]+=%t
set a[%i,%j]=%@eval[%a[%i,%j]+%t]

@EVAL is faster though ... and (now) more capable.
