Quite new to the MathCad game but am finding it very handy in my work.
There's a simple bit of functionality which I would like, and it seems to me that it should be possible, but I can't figure out how to make it happen. Is there a way to strip the functional dependence from a calculated result?
e.g. if I define a:=5, b:=7 and c:=a+b
But what if I want to statically assign the current value of c, either to itself or to another variable?
i.e. I want to be able to assign d:=func(c) where "func" assigns only the numerical value to d, but not the dependence on a and b. Thereafter, if I change a or b upstream, c would recalculate but d would remain (in this case) 12.
To make a poor analogy, I want to be able to do the equivalent of Excel's "paste values only".
thanks in advance,
