Heres what I'm trying to do,

I'm looking to be able to do my calculations with variables etc like I typically do. And prior to printing/publishing I want to be able to change the variables into their numerical value. Below is an example.

A:=1 kip
B=3 kip

I want it to display as when I print it.

A:=1 kip
B:=1 kip+2kip
B=3 kip

Any method of doing this without manually inserting numeric values everywhere??

RE: MathCAD display formatting

Use the "explicit" keyword. This is designed to do (show) the numeric substitutions as part of the symbolic capability.
