# Calculation examples

Accountants Enterprise only

## Example 1

A workpaper may define three numeric fields - N1, N2 and N3. A calculation field, C1, can reference these numeric fields by name in order to perform mathematical operations. The following are all valid expressions:

• N1 + N2 + N3

• N1*(N2 - N3 +1) + ((N1 + N2 + N3)/3.09)

• N3^2 + N1

## Example 2

Calculations may use the results of other calculations. A workpaper may contain two numeric (N1, N2) and two calculation fields (C1, C2) where:

C1 = N1 + N2
C2 = C1 * 1.1

C2 must always be calculated after C1 as the software will not automatically do this. Instead define a calculation sequence value, where:

• C1 has a sequence of 0 and C2 has a sequence of 1.

• lower sequence numbers allow their calculations to be performed before higher ones.

## Example 3

Example of calculations in tables.

In the Designer only one row is visible

N1

N2

N3

C1=N1 + N2 + N3

In a workpaper each cell will have the same field names:

N1

N2

N3

C1=N1 + N2 + N3

N1

N2

N3

C1=N1 + N2 + N3

N1

N2

N3

C1=N1 + N2 + N3

## Example 4

Using the Days function (D1, D2):

D1 = 10/05/2012
D2 = 17/05/2012
then Days (D1, D2) = 7

## Example 5

Using the FirstRow and Above functions:

If(FirstRow(), N1 + N2 - N3, Above (C1) + N2 - N3).

This calculation enables running totals to be calculated.

N1

Row 1

N2

N3

C1 = N1 + N2 - N3

Row 2

N2

N3

C1 = C1 + N2 - N3

Row 3

N2

N3

C1 = C1 + N2 - N3
