Parameter Naming and Formulas

Be careful of the characters you use when naming parameters or labels. Don't use hyphens because they act as 'minus or subtract' when inserted into a formula. As an example: a parameter called 'length-2' would automatically try to subtract 2 from the length every time you enter it in a formula. This would also be true with other characters like * or /.
