Deleting an Equation

To delete a global variable or an equation from any view:

  1. Select one or more rows, containing the global variables or equations you want to delete and right-click.
  2. From the flyout menu, select Delete or the Delete key.
  3. Click OK to close the Equations dialog box.
Deleting a global variable or equation may cause other equations that include the global variable or equation to become invalid. Syntax checking identifies this situation immediately by displaying a warning symbol and displaying the deleted term in red anywhere it appears in the Value/Equation field. This can dramatically reduce the time needed to detect and troubleshoot orphaned equations.
