Hi,
How do I multiply 4 columns of a table together and then output the answer in another column inside the same table. Additionally how do I repeat this for all 40 lines of the table?

I have worked out a way to do this but I am now getting: Operator '.*' is not supported for operands of type 'cell'.
How do I fix this as I am multiplying within a table?

Alex, as you mentioned, the variables are of type cell and double. At best, we can make a guess, but the suggested solution that will probably not work. It will be better if you can attach a sample table, similar to the original table you have. It will make it much easier to suggest a solution quickly.
