Testing Equations
This section discusses how to:
Define equation test data.
View equation test run details.
To test the equation, you may need to set up test data. In an equation for which the sole function is to add a few numbers together, no test data is needed because all the data elements are provided. However, to test an equation that references keys in the table or passes global variables, the equation must have test data present.

This example illustrates the fields and controls on the Equation Test Data page. You can find definitions for the fields and controls later on this page.
Use this page to define the name of the global variable, type, and operand.
After you have defined all the necessary variables and entered data on the Equation Test Data page, click the Test button.
The system displays the Equation Test Results  Process Messages page.
Note: You can also run this process as a batch process rather than initiating it by the Test button.
To test the equation in batch, select the Run Equation option
You can also print the equation that has been established in batch by selecting the Print Equation option
Access the Equation Test Results page: Process Messages tab (click the Test button on the Equation Test Data page).
