Enhancing Tedds for Word calculations with Tedds fields

Tedds fields are Tedds features that help you create different messages and dialogs in your calculation document. Therefore, they can aid you in making your calculations clear and easy to use.

Restriction:

The following only applies to Tedds for Word.

Tedds for Word provides the following major Tedds fields :

  • Input fields, which display a dialog asking for the value of a particular variable.

  • Show fields, which display information about the current calculation.

  • Message fields, which display a message box giving the user information on how to use the calculations.

  • Log fields, which display information, such as details about the progress of the calculation, in the Progress Log.

  • Excel Link fields, which allow you to combine the strength of Tedds for Word and Excel.

  • Data List fields, which allow you to access data lists and select items from them to be used as variables.

  • Data Table fields, which allow you to access data tables and select items from them to be used as variables.

  • Data Graph fields, which allow you to access data graphs and select items from them to be used as variables.

  • Calc Item fields, which allow you to calculate an item stored in a calculation library.

In addition to major Tedds fields , Tedds for Word contains several additional fields. For further information on other Tedds fields , see Other Tedds fields.

To modify some of the major Tedds fields , Tedds for Word contains special functions. The special functions are primarily intended to be used with Input fields, Show fields, Message fields and Log fields. The functions are:
  • The string function, which allows you to format a numerical value as a string to be used in Tedds fields that require a string value.
  • Conditions, which allow you to select a value based on one or more conditions than can be used with Tedds fields.

Advanced Tedds fields allow you to use multiple conditions and other components to enhance your calculations.

Note:

We recommend that you experiment with advanced Tedds fields before actually using them in your actual calculations, as using advanced Tedds fields may require some practice. Experimenting also helps you discover exactly what each field type can offer you.
