Formulas in factors in the Custom Library

Post by fetzer » Fri Mar 13, 2009 3:24 pm

John,

I understand how to put in a formula in a factor and can make it do what I want while configuring an item. However, after I updated the library the formulas triggering from A and B no longer work.

.5*~Ainch for example

Will it only work while configuring the item?

Yes, that's correct behavior Erik. The library can only store the end result of such formulas, not the formula itself. What calc key are you using? Maybe you can use the A in the calc key and a .5 in the factor.
