Hello, I am trying to create a formula to convert rise and run into an angle. Parameters being used: roofRise: Length: Type roofRun: Length: Type roofAngle: Angle: Type: '=tan(roofRise/roofRun)' Problem is I get a message "Inconsistent Units" when it tries to calculate. Any ideas? Thanks for you time! -Carl Post edited on 2005-12-21 13:07:03

<< victim of poor geometry skills. Thanks Steve, that was the problem all along. Is there a reference of usable formula commands? Such a reference may have prevented my display of ignorance. -Carl Post edited on 2005-12-21 14:08:33
