2. Field to enter name of the new calculated values
3. Allows the user to type or select the values to perform a calculation on
4. Field to manually type the formula, using x1 (x2, x3) as the variables
Step 6: Enter the name for the calculation
Step 7: Type in the calculated value or use the dropdown list to select the value for which to calculate (up to 4 values may be calculated upon in one formula)
Step 8: Type in the formula in the formula bar, referring to the selected values by their variable name (eg. 2018 is x1, 2017 is x2)
Click save and you are done!
