Performing Standard Data Operations > Creating Calculations


When analyzing data, it is essential to have the tools to create calculations quickly.  Strata offers this ability with Calculated Fields.


A calculated field is a new field that is added to your existing data table based on a formula you define.  For example, if you wished to add two columns together, you could create a calculated field that would perform this task such as:


field1 + field2


In Strata, calculated fields are more flexible than the traditional type of calculated fields used in database administration.  These fields are "dynamic" in that they update immediately on the screen as you type in your formula.  However, they act in the exact same way as regular fields so you can use them in other calculations and data operations just like you would with regular fields.
