What’s new in MON 20/20
Users familiar with MON2000 or MON2000 Plus will find a few changes
when using MON 20/20:
• Login security is at the gas chromatograph level instead of at the
software level. This means that you no longer have to log in after
starting MON 20/20—but you do have to log in to the gas
chromatograph to which you are trying to connect. For more
information, see “Connecting to a gas chromatograph” on page 1-25.
• An “administrator” role has been added to the list of user roles. This
new role has the highest level of authority and is the only role that can
create or delete all other roles. For more information, see “Managing
users” on page 7-17.
• Multiple users can connect to the same gas chromatograph simultaneously. By default, the first user to log in to the GC with “supervisor”
authority will have read/write access; all other users, including other
supervisor-level users, will have read access only. This configuration
can be changed so that all supervisor-level users have read/write
access regardless of who logs in first. For more information, see
“Managing the system” on page 4-2.
• Users can display multiple windows within MON 20/20.
• Automatic reconnection. If MON 20/20 loses its connection with the
GC, it automatically attempts to reconnect.
• Users can view multiple instances of certain windows. To aid in data
processing or troubleshooting, MON 20/20 is capable of displaying
more than one instance of certain data-heavy windows such as the
Chromatogram Viewer and the Trend Data window.

• Enhanced Chromatogram Viewer. The following enhancements have
been made to the Chromatogram Viwer:
-
-
-
-
-
Users can view an unlimited number of chromatograms, in any
configuration. For example, a user can view an archived
chromatogram and a live chromatogram. For more information,
see “Viewing chromatograms” on page 2-1.
The “Keep Last CGM” option. Upon starting a new run, MON 20/
20 can keep the most recently completed chromatogram on the
graph for reference.
Overview window. When zoomed in to a smaller section of a
chromatogram, the user can open a miniature ‘overview’ window
that displays the entire chromatogram, for reference. For more
information, see “Additional plot commands” on page 2-19.
Older chromatograms available. MON 20/20 has access to
archived chromatograms as old as four or five days. For more
information, see “Viewing an archived chromatogram” on page 2-5.
Full screen mode. For more information, see “Working with the
graph” on page 2-15.
Protected chromatograms. Chromatograms that you designate as
“protected” will not be deleted. For more information, see
“Protecting or unprotecting an archived chromatogram” on page 29.
• The “Invert Polarity “option. This feature reverses a device’s effect.
For more information, see “Inverting the polarity of a valve” on
page 3-14 and “Inverting the polarity of a discrete input” on page 3-28.
• Streamlined variables-picking menu. The method for selecting
variables for calculations and other purposes is contained within one
simple, self-contained menu. For more information, see “Using the
context-sensitive variable selector” on page 1-42.
• GC Time. The GC Status Bar displays the date and time based on the
GC’s physical location, which may be different than the PC’s location.
For more information, see “Setting the gas chromatograph’s date and
time” on page 2-40.
• Daylight savings time. You have option of enabling a GC’s daylight
savings time feature. Also, there are two options for setting the start
and end times for daylight savings time on the GC. For more
information, see “Adjusting daylight savings” on page 2-42.

• Baseline offsetting. In some situations that involve TCD detectors the
baseline may be displayed either too high on the graph, in which case
the tops of the peaks are cut off, or too low on the graph, so that the
bases of the peaks are cut off. If this occurs it is possible to offset the
baseline either up or down so that the entire peak can be displayed on
the graph. This offset will be applied to all traces—live, archived and
saved—that are displayed thereafter. For more information, see
“Viewing raw data” on page 2-38.
• Microsoft Excel-based Parameter List. The Parameter List has been
expanded to offer seven pages of information, and is Microsoft® Excelbased to allow for access outside of MON 20/20. The document can be
imported to and exported from GCs. For more information, see
“Working with the parameter list” on page 5-10.
• Optional Foundation Fieldbus variables. If your GC is installed with
a Foundation Fieldbus, you can map up to 64 GC variables to monitor
using the AMS Suite. For more information, see “Mapping
Foundation Fieldbus variables” on page 4-98.
• Optional local operator interface (LOI) variables. If your GC is
installed with an LOI, you can configure up to 25 GC parameters to
monitor using the LOI’s Display mode. For more information, see
“Working with local operator interface variables” on page 4-96.
• Access to GC-related drawings such as flow diagrams, assembly
drawings, and electrical diagrams.
• Validation runs. During a validation run, the GC performs a test
analysis to verify that it is working properly. For more information,
see “Managing Validation Data Tables” on page 4-35 and “Validating
the Gas Chromatograph” on page 6-7.

Section 2: Using the chromatograph functions
For viewing and managing chromatograms,
MON 20/20 is flexible and straighforward.
This chapter shows you how to connect to and
disconnect from a gas chromatograph. This
chapter also shows you how to access the
Chromatogram Viewer, as well as to use it to
view, print and manipulate various types of
chromatograms.
Finally, this chapter explains how to set a gas chromatograph’s date and
time.
2.1
Viewing chromatograms
Use the Chromatogram Viewer to display and print live, archived, or
saved chromatograms. There is no limit to the number of archived and
saved chromatograms that can be displayed at once; however, to
maximize performance, the number of chromatograms displayed should
be limited to 25 or less. The Chromatogram Viewer can display all three
types of chromatograms together, alone, or in any combination.
The Chromatogram Viewer contains a host of information about both
current and past GC analyses, and it contains just as many ways of
editing and manipulating that data.

2.4.5 Forcing a calibration
The Forced Cal command uses an archived chromatogram’s raw data to
calibrate the GC. The calculation results are stored in the component
data table for the corresponding stream number.
A major benefit of a forced calibration is increased efficiency. Using a
previously validated calibration gas chromatogram removes the necessity
for the GC to perform a calibration and validation run before performing
an analysis.
To perform a forced calibration, do the following:

want to use to calibrate the GC.

2.6.1 Adjusting daylight savings
Daylight savings time is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks so
that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically
clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are
adjusted backward in autumn. Since the use of daylight savings time is
not universal, you have the option of enabling or disabling it in MON 20/
20.
To configure MON 20/20 to use daylight savings time, do the following:
1. Select View/Set Date Time... from the Chromatograph menu. The
View/Set Date Time window displays.

3.1.6 Setting PWM Output
Note
Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) is a technique for providing intermediate amounts of
electrical power between fully on and fully off.
A heater needs voltage to operate. The amount of voltage that is
delivered to a heater can be controlled manually when the heater is set to
Fixed On mode. Setting a heater to Fixed On mode can be useful when
troubleshooting heater issues.
CAUTION
Fixed On mode is not recommended for general GC operations. Switching a heater to
Fixed On mode removes its ability to maintain a constant temperature because the
power delivered to the heater will not fluctuate based on the temperature setpoint, but
will instead remain at the level set by the user.
To set a heater’s PWM Output, do the following:
1. Select Heaters... from the Hardware menu. The Heaters window
displays.

3.4.4 Inverting the polarity of a discrete input
The Invert Polariy option reverses the way a voltage signal is
interpreted by the discrete input. By default, the Invert Polarity option
is set to Normally Open, which means that a low voltage signal is
interpreted by the discrete input as ON, and a high voltage signal is
interpreted by the discrete input as OFF. Setting Invert Polarity to
Normally Closed means that a low voltage signal is interpreted by the
discrete input as OFF, and a high voltage signal is interpreted by the
discrete input as ON.
To set the polarity of a discrete input, do the following:
1. Select Discrete Input... from the Hardware menu. The Discrete
Inputs window displays.

The following table describes the integration-related parameters that are
available on the timed events window.
Parameter
Description
TEV Type
The type of integration event. You have the following options:
• Inhibit: Set to Off to start a peak; set to On to end a peak.
• Integrate: Set to On and Off to set a region in which the area under the trace is
computed as a peak regardless of peak onset discovery. The resulting area is added to
the raw data as a peak with the retention time set to the Integration Off time.
• Summation: Set to On and Off to set a region in which the area of all peaks found will
be added together to create a single, larger, peak. The peaks that contribute to the
summation are marked as partial peaks in the raw data table, and the summation
total is added to the raw data as a new peak with the retention time set to the
Summation OFF time.
• Slope Sens: The peak starts when the slope of six consecutive points is greater than
the slope sensitivity value that is displayed in the Value column; the peak ends when
the slope of six consecutive points is less than the slope sensitivity value that is
displayed in the Value column.
• Peak Width: Each point displayed on the graph represents the average of N raw data
points, where N is the value displayed in the corresponding Value column.
• Single Base: Determines how the baseline is drawn under a peak.
• Off: The baseline is drawn from the point of peak onset to the point of
peak termination. This is not necessarily horizontal and if fact usually
has a slight slope. (Default)
• Bgn: Draws a horizontal baseline from the point of peak onset to a point
above or below the peak termination.
• End: Draws a horizontal baseline from a point above or below the peak
onset to the point of peak termination.
• Fused Ovrrd: Determines how the baseline is drawn when two or more peaks are
'fused' together.
• Off: A single baseline is drawn from the onset of the first peak of the
fused group to the termination of the last peak of the group. (Default)
• On: Causes a separate baseline to be drawn for each peak in the fused
group.
• Negative Peak: Determines whether peak detection will detect inverted peaks, which
are peaks that point downward from the baseline. At any given moment we can
detect positive or negative peaks but not both at once.
• Off: Detect positive peaks. (Default)
• On: Detective negative peaks.
• SW Auto Zero: Re-baselines the trace at the specified time for the specified detector.
Used after a FID gain change event or a spectrum gain change event.
Note: The Single Base and Fused Override events can act together to produce
multiple horizontal baselines, at different heights, for a fused peak group.

The following is a description of the design elements of the Edit Userdefined Calculation window:
• Element A - Called the Calculation Steps Viewer, this element
displays the line-by-line construction of the calculation as it is
being built. The following commands allow you to interact with
this area:
• Click Clear All to clear the content of the Calculation Steps
Viewer.
• Click Clear Line to clear the content of the selected line.
Note
If the selected line is an "If-Then" statement, then the entire condition is cleared. This
button is disabled when the cursor is on an "else" or "endif" condition.
• Click Delete Line to delete the selected line.
Note
If the selected line is the beginning of a conditional statement, then the entire "If-Then"
block will be deleted along with the expressions that constitute the "If-Then" construct.
If the selected line is part of the conditional "If-Then" construct—that is, the line only
has "Else" or "Endif" in it—then the entire "If-Then" construct will be deleted.
• Click Copy to copy the selected line to the clipboard. You cannot
copy keywords such as “else” or “endif.”
• Click Paste to paste the content of the clipboard into a selected
line. If the line already has a calculation in it, it is cleared before
the content of the clipboard is pasted into it.
• Element B - A drop-down menu with the following three
commands:
• Insert Comment - Adds a comment to the calculation. Each
comment is preceded by “//.”
• Insert Condition - Adds an “If-Then” statement to the
calculation.
• Insert Expression - Adds a mathematical expression to the
calculation.
• Element C - Also called the Expression Editor, this section is the
work area where the comment, condition or expression is built
before being added to the Calculation Steps Viewer. There are four
modes of the Expression Editor, depending upon what action is
being performed:

Command
Description
Point
Sets the X-axis values to points. For the purposes of this graph,
each sample run is considered a data point. Therefore, if 2500
sample runs were used to generate the trend graph, then there are
2500 data points.
Default
Value
0
NOTE: The X-axis value for the first sample, or point, in the trend
graph is 0, not 1. The X-axis value for the final point in the trend
graph is N - 1, where N is the total number of points in the graph.
• X Min - Sets the minimum value for the X axis to the point
number of the first sample you want to use in the plot. Default
value is 0.
• X Max - Sets the maximum value for the X axis to the point
number of the last sample you want to use in the plot. Default
value is N - 1, where N is the total number of points in the graph.
Therefore, if there are 2500 points, then the X Max would be
2499.
Date Time
Sets the X-axis values to the particular GC dates and times of each
sample runs.
• From - Sets the minimum value for the X axis to the date of the
first sample you want to use in the plot.
• To - Sets the maximum value for the X axis to the date of the
last sample you want to use in the plot.
• Date Format - Options are MM-DD-YYYY or DD-MM-YYYY.
N/A
The primary Y axis is the default axis for displaying trend graphs. The
secondary Y axis can be used to display a second graph whose minimum
and maximum values are different than the minimum and maximum
values of the first graph.

Section 7: Using MON 20/20 Tools
The options in the Tools pull-down menu allow you
to do the following:
•Use the Modbus Test program to confirm that
data is being accurately relayed from the gas
chromatograph to the PC.
•Manage users.
•Adjust the sensitivity of the LOI keys.
•Install upgrades to the GC.
7.1
Using the Modbus Test program
Use the Modbus program to poll the GC’s Modbus registers (or registers
from another device) to confirm that data is accurately relayed from the
gas chromatograph to the PC. Then, as necessary, assign data types to
the returned data. See “Assigning scale ranges to User_Modbus
registers” on page 7-15 for more information. You can save all settings to
a file for future reference.
You can use this program to facilitate software debugging or for special
installations. With this program, you can troubleshoot any device that
employs registers including the GC, an ultrasonic meter, or a flow
computer.
CAUTION
NOT REQIURED FOR NORMAL GC OPERATION
The Modbus Test is reserved for advanced functions. The Modbus Test function is not
required for normal GC operation. Skip this section unless you are developing software,
engaging in a software debugging process, or designing a custom installation that
directly accesses the GC Controller Modbus registers.
Traditionally, Modbus registers are polled by using a data collection
system (DCS). To facilitate installation and debugging, the Modbus
program emulates a DCS.

This section provides detailed instructions for using the Modbus program.
Use this program only if you are familiar with Modbus communication
protocol and the operation of MON 20/20.
7.1.1 Comparing Modbus protocols
MON 20/20 and the Modbus program can accommodate two different
Modbus protocols: SIM_2251 and User_Modbus. Separate Modbus
registers are reserved for each protocol; therefore, some settings for MON
20/20 and WinMB depend on which Modbus protocol is used.
The protocol you need depends, ultimately, on the hardware used for data
acquisition from the GC Modbus register contents.
The following comparison should help clarify the differences between the
two protocols as well as the utility of each.

When using the Modbus program, set Register
Mode to “DANIEL” to view register contents.
When using the Modbus program, set Register
Mode to “PLC- LH” or “PLC-HL” to view register
contents.
It is not necessary to assign scales to registers.
It may be necessary to assign scales to registers, to

7.1.3 Getting Modbus Data
To read or write register contents to the GC, or any other device, do the
following:
Note
Before retrieving data, print a GC Config Report (see Section 5.12) and review the
Communication section to learn the variable names that are assigned to the Modbus
registers.
Note
Modbus registers assigned to alarms are application-specific.
1. In the Slave Addr field, type the COM ID of the GC. The Modbus
program will accept a slave address value of 1 to 247.
To use Broadcast Mode, which directs the Modbus program to poll all
known devices, enter 0 in the Slave Addr field. Each device interprets
this poll attempt as an instruction to read and take action; however, a
response message may not be received by the Modbus program.
Note
Changes are applied to the corresponding register value at each device.

Section 1.7 for more information.
7.1.9 Assigning scale ranges to User_Modbus registers
By assigning scale ranges, floating point data can be converted to integer
values. This is an optional task that applies to applications using the
User_Modbus protocol.
Use the Register command described in Section 4.12.4, “Viewing or
editing scales” on page 92 to assign scale ranges. See Appendix C for more
information regarding the gas chromatograph’s Modbus registers.

Troubleshooting communication errors
The Modbus program’s Error Log is maintained in a circular buffer that
holds up to 512 entries.
The Modbus program tracks the errors for a given session but does not
store them. When you exit the Modbus program, all errors are cleared.
To view any communication errors that occurred during the data
transfer, do the following:

Managing users
Use the User
Administration
commands to create or
delete users, change
passwords, and to
monitor PC-to-GC
connections.
Login security is at the gas chromatograph level instead of at the
software level. This means that you no longer have to log in after starting
MON 20/20—but you do have to log in to the gas chromatograph to which
you are trying to connect. This also means that if you create a new user,
that user is only valid for the GC to which you are connected. You cannot
connect to any other GC unless you create the same user on it first.
MON 20/20 recognizes the following four user types, or roles, each with
an increasing level of access to functionality:
• Read-only - A read-only user has the lowest level of access and can
view data but cannot make any changes. A read-only user can change
his or her password only.
• Regular - A regular user has all of the privileges of a read-only user,
as well as the ability to acknowledge and clear alarms. A regular user
can also control the GC through MON 20/20’s Control menus. A
regular user can change his or her password only and cannot create or
delete other users.
• Super User - A super user has all of the privileges of a regular user,
as well as the ability to manage and control the GC through MON 20/
20’s Application and Hardware menus. A super user can change his or
her password only and cannot create or delete other users.
• Administrator - An administrator has complete access to all of MON
20/20’s commands and functions, as well as the ability to manage all
other users by creating or deleting user accounts, and changing
passwords.

Appendix B, Data computations

B.1
Data acquisition
Every second, exactly 50 equally-spaced data samples are taken (i.e., one
data sample every 20 milliseconds) for analysis by the controller
assembly.
As a part of the data acquisition process, groups of incoming data samples
are averaged together before the result is stored for processing. Nonoverlapping groups of N samples are averaged and stored, and thus
reduce the effective incoming data rate to 40/N samples per second. For
example, if N = 5, then a total of 40/5 or 6 (averaged) data samples are
stored every second.
The value for the variable N is determined by the selection of a Peak
Width parameter (PW). The relationship is:
N = PW
where PW is given in seconds. Allowable values of N are 1 to 63; this
range corresponds to PW values of 2 to 63 seconds.
The variable N is known as the integration factor. This term is used
because N determines how many points are averaged, or integrated, to
form a single value. The integration of data upon input, before storing,
serves two purposes:
• The statistical noise on the input signal is reduced by the square root
of N. In the case of N = 4, a noise reduction of two would be realized.
• The integration factor controls the bandwidth of the chromatograph
signal. It is necessary to match the bandwidth of the input signal to
that of the analysis algorithms in the controller assembly. This
prevents small, short-duration perturbations from being recognized as
true peaks by the program. It is therefore important to choose a Peak
Width that corresponds to the narrowest peak in the group under
consideration.

Peak detection
For normal area or peak height concentration evaluation, the
determination of a peak's start point and end point is automatic. The
manual determination of start and end points is used only for area
calculations in the Forced Integration mode. Automatic determination of
peak onset or start is initiated whenever Integrate Inhibit is turned off.
Analysis is started in a region of signal quiescence and stability, such
that the signal level and activity can be considered as baseline values.
Note
The controller assembly software assumes that a region of signal quiescence and
stability will exist.
Having initiated a peak search by turning Integrate Inhibit off, the
controller assembly performs a point by point examination of the signal
slope. This is achieved by using a digital slope detection filter, a
combination low pass filter and differentiator. The output is continually
compared to a user-defined system constant called Slope Sensitivity. A
default value of 8 is assumed if no entry is made. Lower values make
peak onset detection more sensitive, and higher values make detection
less sensitive. Higher values (20 to 100) would be appropriate for noisy
signals, e.g. high amplifier gain.
Onset is defined where the detector output exceeds the baseline constant,
but peak termination is defined where the detector output is less than the
same constant.
Sequences of fused peaks are also automatically handled. This is done by
testing each termination point to see if the region immediately following
it satisfies the criteria of a baseline. A baseline region must have a slope
detector value less than the magnitude of the baseline constant for a
number of sequential points. When a baseline region is found, this
terminates a sequence of peaks.
A zero reference line for peak height and area determination is
established by extending a line from the point of the onset of the peak
sequence to the point of the termination. The values of these two points
are found by averaging the four integrated points just prior to the onset
point and just after the termination points, respectively.

The zero reference line will, in general, be non-horizontal, and thus
compensates for any linear drift in the system from the time the peak
sequence starts until it ends.
In a single peak situation, peak area is the area of the component peak
between the curve and the zero reference line. The peak height is the
distance from the zero reference line to the maximum point on the
component curve. The value and location of the maximum point is
determined from quadratic interpolation through the three highest points
at the peak of the discrete valued curve stored in the controller assembly.
For fused peak sequences, this interpolation technique is used both for
peaks, as well as, valleys (minimum points). In the latter case, lines are
dropped from the interpolated valley points to the zero reference line to
partition the fused peak areas into individual peaks.
The use of quadratic interpolation improves both area and height
calculation accuracy and eliminates the effects of variations in the
integration factor on these calculations.
For calibration, the controller assembly may average several analyses of
the calibration stream.

Analysis computations
There are two basic analysis algorithms included in the GC:
• Area Analysis – calculates area under component peak
• Peak Height Analysis – measures height of component peak

B.4.3 Multi-level calibration
The properties of each gas component can be viewed using the
Component Data menu. Included with the component properties in the
Component Data Table are four coefficients labeled Multi-Level Calib 'a',
'b', 'c', and 'd', for each component. If these parameters are all set to zero,
then linear calibration is used. See Section B.3.1 for the Response Factor
calculations.
If any of these parameters have a value other than zero, then multi-level,
or polynomial calibration is used for that component.
The response factors are then calculated as:
3

aP + bP + cP + d
ResponseFactor = ---------------------------------------------------------------------CalibrationConcentration (mol %)
where
P
Peak size from average calibration runs.
Coefficients:
a,b,c, and d
Calculated offline and entered after multi-level calibration using several-typically seven--calibration gases.
NOTE: If the coefficient values are correct, the response factor will be close
to 1.

several--typically seven--calibration gases.
NOTE: If the coefficient values are correct, the response factor will be
close to 1.
B.4.4 Indirect calibration
Component gases that are not found in the calibration gas, but may be
found in the sample gas, can be assigned a relative response factor that is
a fixed multiple of a reference component that is found in the calibration
gas.
The Relative Response Factors and Reference Component Values are
included in the Component Data Table. See Appendix A for more
information.
If the Reference Component is None, then normal (direct) calibration is
used.
If the Reference Component is defined, (e.g. Propane) then the mole%
value for the indirect component (e.g. neoC5), is calculated as:
⎛ P ( neoC5 ) ⎞
mole% (neoC5) = mole% (Propane) ⎝ -------------------------------⎠ ( RRFneoC5 )

Appendix C, Modbus registers list
A
There are two GC Modbus registers that may be of interest to the
developer: SIM_2251 and User_Modbus. Differences betweeb the two
registers are summarized in Table C-1.
Table C-1 Comparison of SIM_2251 and User_Modbus
SIM_2251
User_Modbus
Serial slave port.
Serial slave port.
Modified protocol that allows floating point
numbers to be transmitted over Modbus via 2251
emulation slave type.
The standard Gould Modbus protocol that
accommodates PLC Emulation LO-HI.
Nearly all register contents are predefined; a few
9000-series registers can be user-defined (i.e.,
read-write).
Boolean (coils) are predefined. Numeric
(registers) are user-defined.
Variables assigned to registers can be listed in
the GC Config Report. For instructions and an
example report, see Section 5.12.
Variables assigned to registers can be listed in
the GC Config Report. For instructions and an
example report, see Section 5.12.
When using the Modbus Test program, set
Register Mode to “DANIEL” to view register
contents (see Section 7.1.2).
When using the Modbus Test software, set
Register Mode to “PLC LH” to view register
contents (see Section 7.1.2).
C.1
User_Modbus register list
Table C-2 lists only variables included in the User_Modbus Boolean
Modbus registers. These registers are not user-defined and primarily
contain alarm flags that may be useful for debugging purposes. To use the
Modbus program to view the contents of these registers, you will need to
set the Function parameter to 1 (Read Coil). See Section 7.1 for details
on using the Modbus program.
All other User_Modbus registers can be defined by the user. To define
User_Modbus register contents, see Section 4.12.3.

In MON 20/20, building a calculation is similar to building a simple
program. You have constants and two types of variables available, as
well as two calculation-building commands. You can also add
comments that will be ignored by the application but that can help you
explain the logic and structure of the calculation you are designing.

The following is a description of the design elements of the Edit Userdefined Calculation window:
• Element A - Called the Calculation Steps Viewer, this element
displays the line-by-line construction of the calculation as it is
being built. The following commands allow you to interact with
this area:
• Click Clear All to clear the content of the Calculation Steps
Viewer.
• Click Clear Line to clear the content of the selected line.
Note
If the selected line is an "If-Then" statement, then the entire condition is cleared. This
button is disabled when the cursor is on an "else" or "endif" condition.
• Click Delete Line to delete the selected line.
Note
If the selected line is the beginning of a conditional statement, then the entire "If-Then"
block will be deleted along with the expressions that constitute the "If-Then" construct.
If the selected line is part of the conditional "If-Then" construct—that is, the line only
has "Else" or "Endif" in it—then the entire "If-Then" construct will be deleted.
• Click Copy to copy the selected line to the clipboard. You cannot
copy keywords such as “else” or “endif.”
• Click Paste to paste the content of the clipboard into a selected
line. If the line already has a calculation in it, it is cleared before
the content of the clipboard is pasted into it.
• Element B - A drop-down menu with the following three
commands:
• Insert Comment - Adds a comment to the calculation. Each
comment is preceded by “//.”
• Insert Condition - Adds an “If-Then” statement to the
calculation.
• Insert Expression - Adds a mathematical expression to the
calculation.
• Element C - Also called the Expression Editor, this section is the
work area where the comment, condition or expression is built

The following commands allow you to interact with the Expression
Editor:
• Click Clear to clear the content of the entire line. The line itself
is not deleted.
• Click Delete Item to delete the currently active token. Each
mathematical function, numeric data, and mathematical
operation is treated as a token. The token to the right of the
current cursor location is treated as the currently active token.
• Click Evaluate Exp to check the validity of the expression. If
any errors are detected in the syntax, then an error will be
reported in the Output window.
Note
This button is only active when the line being edited is an expression.
• Click Done to evaluate the expression and copy it to the
Calculations Steps Viewer. If there are any errors in the
expression, they are reported in the Output window.
• Element D - This section contains calculator functions that can be
used to build a mathematical expression. This section can be
