I am trying to take two variables and divide one by the other and
setting them to another variable. NoteTab doesn't like this line I
made and I can't figure out why.

;Resize images based on reduction factor
;^!Set %ImgWidth%=^\$Calc(%ImgWidth%/%ResizeFactor%;0)\$;
%ImgHeight%=^\$Calc(%ImgHeight%/%ResizeFactor%;0)\$;

I am trying to take the value from imgwidth and divide it by the
resizefactor values and store it in imgwidth.

Hi duke,

Clip questions belong on th the clips list, however --

You need at circumflex ^ in front of %var% where you want the content
of the variable to be substituted. Also your set statement is preceded
by a semicolon, which makes it a comment.

^!Set %var%="Hello World"
^!Info var content is: ^%var%
