Equations in SolidWorks 2003


Hello everyone,

I'm new here, and I'm having some issues with the equations tool.

I have SolidWorks 2003 in windows XP. I'm using this older version because it's the one my colege got licence to.

I'm trying to use a simple equation, a rectangle that has a width with half the hight.

I'm following the steps in this tutorial:
Adding Equations in SolidWorks - YouTube
that uses some newer version, but the stps are praticly the same.

I've renamed the label's and have the equation syntax as:
"[email protected]" = "[email protected]" / 2
as generated by selecting the measurments and using the virtual keyboard, like in that video.

With this I get the error: "The syntax of this equation is incorrect".

Can anyone tell me what's going on?
