Is there a way to convert a text parameter in an entire

Is there a way to convert a text parameter in an entire
column to anumber so that it can be used in an equation?

- Basically I'm looking to multiply the length from the parameterSWPipeLength by the total quantity of the part, i.e.: if 2 theassembly contains 2 pipe parts, each 6" long, I want the qtyto show 12" and not 6".

I created an equation for the column to either report the qty ofeach item or the SWPipeLength, whichever is appropriate.Unfortunately, when I try to multiply the length by the qty, itdisplays 0. I'm assuming this is because the SWPipeLength parameteris text.

Hope this helps.

Could you please be more specific; what text parameter in what column?
