What does the Computation tab do?

PowerSteering will compute the value of a line item based on a formula that is configured using the template's line items and supported operators when all of the following conditions are true:

  • The line item is not a Static or Separator item.
  • The line item does not already contain data.
  • The line item does not have a constraint.

This article describes how to define formulas on the Computation tab.

  • Click the line item that you want to create a formula for. Formulas can be created in either the formula builder or the free-form text field depending on your preferences.

2. Create Formula With Formula Builder

  1. Select line items and operators from the context sensitive drop-down menus.
  2. Click Save.

2.1. Create Formula in Free-From Text Field

  1. Click Text Mode.
  2. Enter the formula in the free-form text field, using [#] to represent line items, where # is the line item's number. There is no need to enter the "equals" part of the equation.
  3. Click Save.
