    IS it possible to store the answer of a math problem then recall it later in the same clip ? EXAMPLE ^$CALC((^?[A=]+^?[B=]);4)$ say it =C store C and use

      IS it possible to store the answer of a math problem then recall it later in the same clip ?

      EXAMPLE

      ^$CALC((^?[A=]+^?[B=]);4)$ say it =C store "C" and use it in spot

      ^$CALC((^?[C=]+^?[D=]);4)$ ECT

      Just like on a calculator and use it in the same clip at another spot

      ... You can store C as a variable, %C% To retrieve the result in it, put a caret in front of it, ^%C% ^!Set %C%=^$CALC((^?[A=]+^?[B=]);4)$ ^!Set

        You can store C as a variable, %C%
        To retrieve the result in it, put a caret in front of it, ^%C%

        ^!Set %C%=^$CALC((^?[A=]+^?[B=]);4)$
        ^!Set %E%=^$CALC((^%C%+^?[D=]);4)$
        ^!Info E=^%E%

        This does what I wanted. But is there a way I can have it put the calculation in the file. And not just pop up a dialog box? Mike

          ... Use one of the insert commands. Either of the following would probably do: Use ^!InsertText instead of ^!Set %E%= and remove the ^!Info line or Use

            Use one of the insert commands. Either of the following would probably do:

            Use "^!InsertText " instead of "^!Set %E%=" and remove the ^!Info line

            or

            Use "^!InsertText ^%E%" instead of "^!Info E=^%E%"

            Let me stick my neck out and speculate, that what you really want is to use the result at a later time or date. NoteTab can do that too! You don t even have to

              You don't even have to bother with file handling.


              Take the result from Sheri's calculation, and create PERMANENT variables instead:

              > > ^!Info E=^%E%

              ^!SaveValue MikesMath:C=^%C%
              ^!SaveValue MikesMath:E=^%E%

              Or, you could save the data in 1 step (omitting the temporary variable):

              ^!SaveValue MikesMath:C=^$CALC((^?[A=]+^?[B=]);4)$
              ^!SaveValue MikesMath:E=^$CALC((^%C%+^?[D=]);4)$


              even if you close NoteTab, and shut off your PC, you can retrieve this data the next time you start up again (unless you OVERWRITE the data before that), with:

              ^!Set %c%=^$GetValue(MikesMath:C)$
              ^!Set %e%=^$GetValue(MikesMath:E)$


              Read the section about variables in NoteTab help.



              Cheers,

              Eb
