multiply atribute values using rtext
« on: July 29, 2004, 03:57:55 PM »
Greetings everyone.

I have a problem I'm working on.  I'm working on a B.O.M. and I'm trying to extract the value of attribute 'A' (# of pieces) and multpily it by attribute 'B' (# of assemblies) and give me a total required.  I've been trying it with RTEXT so it updates automatically but I can't seem to get it right.  Any help or alternative meathods would be greatly appreciated.

TIA!!!

You could use express tools export attributes and insert the columns into excel and make a formula to multiply the two.

I would like it to update the total dynamically.  Thats why I was trying RTEXT.  I just can't seem to get the syntax right for extracting the atribute values and multiplying them.

wouldn't you require some sort of reactor to accomplish that ?
what are you using as your "trigger" at the moment ?
