Calculated master inspection characteristics


Hi All,

I am implementing in a chemical company and they have a requirement that someof the characteristics have a calculated result. I have not used formula calculation for characteristics before, can anyone help me?

I have defined the characteristic (ex loss on drying) in the control indicators, i have checked the 'calc characteristics' option. Now in the inspection plan, I am trying to define the formula. The formula is such that

loss of drying=(x-y)/100 where x= weight before drying, y= weight after drying.

How do i define this?. Is it possible or will I have to define X and Y as characteristics?

Please reply urgently.
