Math Column

Performs instant calculations on your data

The Math Column allows you to perform instant calculations on the data in your table from basic arithmetic functions to more complex ones.

You can then bind the formulas in your column to different components in your app and see the output instantly.

Configuration

Once you've added the Math Column, you need to configure your calculation or formula. As you start typing in the Configuration field, Glide will guess which column you are referring to and add a new replacement field.

This means you don't have to use the full column name in your calculation. For example, instead of using the formula:

(Annual Salary Package)/12

you could just write: AS/12 and then use the replacement fields to tell the Math Column what AS refers to:

You can reassign your replacements to different columns whenever you like:

Supported calculations

The Math Column works with the following calculations:

+ ADDITION - SUBTRACTION * MULTIPLICATION / DIVISION ^ EXPONENTIATION () PARENTHESIS

And the following functions e.g. LOG() or ABS()

LOG ABS MIN MAX FLOOR CEILING ROUND TRUNC ASIN COS ACOS ATAN MOD DAY MONTH YEAR

The Math Column only accepts the above symbols. It will throw an error if you try to use another symbol.
