Why do you need SAME or the % for the channel position of a custom field?
I just tested a CF called A.%.SAME.AVE(Area) on PDA data that had 4 derived channel single wavelengths and when I processed the data I got results for every single channel. Then when I edited the formula to A.%..AVE(Area) I still got the same results for the channels! I don't understand why you need the SAME function if Empower will automatically cycle through each channel anyway to give you separate results..
Also when I entered a % in for the channel (A.%.%.AVE(Area)) it still gave me separate results for each channel when I presumed that the % would mean Empower adds up the areas for ALL channels ie the area of active in all injections of the first, second, third and fourth channels then divide the result by the total number of channels ie (200000/4) but this didn't happen- I got separate blocks of results per channel. Its probably something small but I don't understand how % and SAME are in any way different.
When I use a CF like %.%.%.AVE(Area) and I have several different labels in the sample set (for example, A, B, C, D etc) then Empower DID add up the area value for every single labelled injection which I presumed the % would do for all the channels. Any ideas??
