This value must be a scalar or a matrix

This value must be a scalar or a matrix

Having the following issue when writing a function in Mathcad.

RE: This value must be a scalar or a matrix

Thanks Greg. I got it working by moving the dimension out side of the programing line. It must be something with the Mathcad version...it was working with the old version the way I had it in the first post.

RE: This value must be a scalar or a matrix

the subscripts seem off
could you use the variable bar as a subscript
you can also use .dia := diameter(bar) = and it should show 0.50in after the + sign

RE: This value must be a scalar or a matrix

It would be easier not to use functions, but only array index. See below in MathCad prime, could be done similar in 15
