Scaling a Parameter

EDIT has an option that lets you scale  a parameter. This is useful when you want to change the units of a parameter. For example, suppose you entered the current, IP, in kiloamps, but now would prefer it in amps. Just scale IP by 1000. This command replaces the old value with the scaled value in every record of your database that meets the conditions you've specified. (Note that IP is not an expression, but a parameter.)

  Edit option         SC
  Constraints?        SHOT>80000;
  Parameter to scale? IP
  by?                 1000
  Constraints?        \
