MathCAD matrix units displayed messing up result

MathCAD matrix units displayed messing up result

I'm doing some matrix algebra then displaying the results, and when I change the units of the results it affects the variable later in the work sheet see the attachment or the link.
This is only happening on my computer it work fine on another computer I might have a setting wrong?
The units a result are shown with should no effect the value of the variable
Thank you

RE: MathCAD matrix units displayed messing up result

What version of Mathcad are you using?  There was a bug similar to this I think in the early versions of MC13 or MC14 which was (eventually) fixed by an update.  Verify that you have all the available updates for the version you're using.


RE: MathCAD matrix units displayed messing up result

I'm using MathCAD 14 Which update do I need? or will the newest one fix this problem?
Thank you

RE: MathCAD matrix units displayed messing up result

If you're not running M020, definitely upgrade to that.  I think that fixed that problem, although it's been awhile since I've used M14, and the PTC resource center is not terribly helpful on what was fixed in each upgrade.
