Re: Process Number Variable Calculations

** 6 + $FFvart$** (instead of $FFvart$ - 6 ) . Not a great solution but it worked for me.

Re: Process Number Variable Calculations

Is the variable a standard FFCore variable (e.g., described in HELP)? Can provide me the name of the variable? Depending on variable type (e.g., string, enum, number, dimension), you may be forming a non-supported outcome with your formula. In what node are you applying the formula? Is the error posted on the job management GUI?

Unfortuneately your attached pngs are clipped. I do not understand how the formula is designated or the error message.

Re: Process Number Variable Calculations

A "$" is needed at the end of the variable name -- not a "&". $FFvar$-6 should work.

Re: Process Number Variable Calculations

Would your example work as follows:

$FFvar1$ + (2*FFvar2$).

If the order of operations is strictly followed the "2" will be added to $FFvar1$ and then the sum multiplied by $FFvar2$ . This is another way of represented what you may be obtaining ($FFvar1$ + 2) * ($FFvar2$)

Re: Process Number Variable Calculations

The following is the documentation in Help:

**Process Number Variable Calculations**

Number settings may support Calculated values as part of their configuration. Calculated values may be defined using arithmetic formulas. The following operations are supported:

• Addition

• Subtraction

• Multiplication

• Division

• Parentheses to change the order of operations

In addition, the formula may also include other Process Variables.

Example: ($FFwfdoc.pages$ / 2) + 1

The Default Value Setting defines a fixed value that will be used if the selected variable is undefined for a given job.
