```I would guess that the calculation is trying to subtract MATL from F. Could
it be enclosed in quotes or something?```

Subject: [U2] Attribute Problem

Hi.  I think I have finally gone insane.

I am having a problem with the attribute MATL.AMT.  It calculates the
extended amount on hand by taking the frozen material cost times the on hand
amount.

The problem is when I use F_MATL for the frozen material cost, MATL.AMT is
good.  When I use F-MATL for the frozen material cost, it returns 0
everytime.

F_MATL and F-MATL are identical and if you list them both work fine.  But
when they are used in the calculation F_MATL works, but F-MATL. doesn't.
Can anyone see what the problem is?
