Create Plane that Bisects Object (Creo 2.0)

I'm currently trying to insert a plane that bisects the thickness dimension of the geometry in the attached picture. The dimension of the thickness in the sketch is called sd5. When I enter "sd5/2" into the translation offset box and hit OK, an error that states "You have entered a value that contains invalid characters." (Reference the attached photo "Bisector.PNG.") I believe I was able to get this work before in a similar fashion, but I'm not sure why it is not working currently. Any help is appreciated. FYI I'm using Creo 2.0.

sdx dimensions are only available in the sketch. This is because the same name can be repeated in multiple sketches. Look for the dimension that is created for the feature - it will not have an 's' prefix. You can see it if you select the feature for modifying it and Switch DImensions.
