# Number of values in calculations

Hello!
I have some trouble trying to find and get the following. In a calculation obtained by a formula, is it possible to know how many value are taken to get the result and not only the numeric result?

• Every part of the calculation will use the full amount of background decimals to produce the final result. For example, a formula of (Area*10)\Retention Time would take the full value of Area of a peak (say 101456.3098109867..etc) multiplied by 10, then divided by Retention Time of that peak (say 2.3456610988 etc) to give a final result. Empower displays a max precision of 14 decimal places for real numbers but Oracle uses 17 digits in the background. Each field is considered to its full value unless you ROUND it in a formula.
• I think I did not explain my issue clearly.
The fact is: letś say that I have 7 data (2, 4, 6, 8, 1, 3, 5) and I create a custom fields that says: add all the values above value 4 (so then 6, 8, 5). What I get is a nummeric value (19 for this example).
What I wonder is whether you can also get something like "the number of values that were added" (in this case 3).
