I am trying to get a simple arithmetic formula to update on the data card. According to PDM help, I should be able to evaluate $Add(11.2,3). But nothing shows up in the Edit box on the data card.

The only flags that have been set are, "Show in Explorer" All other flags are turned off.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Input formulas don't evaluate unless an update is made in the card by the user. Typically, you use an input formula to take the variable value from a card input and alter it in some way. Since your example doesn't have a variable in it, there is nothing to trigger the formula to evaluate. So if you had a numeric variable and wanted to add 3 to it, you would use the formula you asked about.
