Macro function: Multiply()


The Multiply command can be used to multiply the numeric value at the text cursor by a supplied value.  A dialog box will appear to retrieve the value to multiply by.  After clicking OK the arithmetic is performed and the old value is replaced by the result.


If the text cursor is situated on a character rather than a numeric value, the character value of the character at the cursor will be multiplied by the supplied value and the resultant character will be displayed. If the resultant character value is out of range, an error message will be given.
