I've been trying to make some models in SW 2016, but I can't use the equations at all. I open equations manager, and keeps saying the syntax is incorrect. Even when it is simply '= 2'.
Is this a known problem with a solution?
Usually a bad install, an issue with VBA.
If an anti-virus program was active during installation, this may happen.
Any chance you have a word like "Thickness" in your variable name, or equation comment? I've seen that generate weird equation errors. I think "Len" may also be disallowed, but throws up a different error.I which they'd document this stuff, but alas.
I haven't heard of it, thanks
It's failing even when I just put use equals two. Or to say it another way, = 2
Has it worked before?
What do you see if you export your equations to a text file (if it will let you). Perhaps you can identify some weird syntax error that way. I'm guessing you have some sort of install or windows corruption somewhere though. Equations (especially driving them top down from an assembly) got better with the 2017 version, but they mostly worked with 2016.
Can you post your model? I have SW2016 installed so I can open it and see if I get the same message.
Model doesn't matter, it is happening on all files I open in SW2016.
Attach a screen shot of where you typing "= 2".
Josh could be correct with a VBA problem.
