  3. Entry under Equation:

    The type Value range variable has different subtypes, which are controlled by the specific syntax.

    Type

    Expression

    Explanation

    Range definition with included limits

    [10:100]

    square brackets

    A range from 10 to 100 is defined..

    Range definition without included limits

    ($A1.:90)

    round brackets

    A range from A1 to 90 is defined, where A1 is the variable name.

    Range definition with additional default value 50,[10:100] A range from 10 to 100 is defined. Default value is 50.

    Range definition with step width

    [100:300/50]

    square brackets

    no backslash!

    A range from 100 to 300 is defined. The step width is 50.

    Enumeration

    1,3,5,7,9,$A2

    The selected variable may have only the values 1,3,5,7,9 and A2.

    [Note] Note

    If you use Variables within the value range expression, always enter a $ symbol in front of the variable and a " . " (period) after the variable!

    In the following you can see some exemplary figures.

    Example: Range from 100 to 300 with a step width of 50

    Example: Range from 100 to 300 with a step width of 50

    Example: Range from 1 to any value greater than 1 with a default value of 100

    Example: Range from 1 to any value greater than 1 with a default value of 100

    Example: Listing of values

    Example: Listing of values

  4. Test in the table, whether the function is as desired.

    Therefor, click into the value range field and select the desired value.

  5. Just as well you can test in PARTdataManager. Table view and value selection are identical as in PARTdesigner.
