What Are The Basics?

Creating a new field calculation is as simple as the following steps:

Select a column in your data.

Select an operation and enter constant.

Select a data type.

Give a name to the new column.

1. Select a column in your data.

Use the left-most dropdown to pick from the list of columns (data fields). You could click one or many or select all to choose all fields.

2. Select an operation and enter a constant.

Use the second dropdown to choose a math operation. The following mathematical operations are possible:

add (+) add all values by a constant value.

subtract (-) subtract all values by a constant value.

multiply (*) multiply all values by a constant value.

divide (/) divide all values by a constant value.

pow() raise all values in a column to the power of n (constant value).

3. Select a data type.

Use the dropdown within the text box to select a data type for the new column. By default, the node will auto-detect the data type in the field calculation and assign the same type in the new column.

4. Give a name to the new column.

Use the text box to enter a new name for the resulting column.

How Do I Add, Re-Order, and Delete Calculations?

The Add Calculation button allows you to add as many calculations as you wish. You can use the drag bar on the left to re-order calculation upwards or downwards to the desired position.

Each field calculation you create will add a new column to the right of your data. You could also delete a field calculation by clicking on the "x" button to the right of the New Column Name.
