How to raise a real number to a power

Postby Kerm on Tue Oct 02, 2012 8:53 am

In WinTask how can I calculate for example y=(12.5)^1.5 ?
in C language I use: x^y = exp (y * log(x)) but exp and log do not seem to exist in WinTask.

Hello,

Such functions on real numbers do not exist in WinTask (it's an automation tool).

But you can use an external program and call it with its parameters using the WinTask Shell function, or you can do the operation within an Excel cell, and using ReadExcel, you read the result in the WinTask script.

Regards.
