Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

If the error message says, 'non-numeric data', then you have strings (i.e. letter-and-space sequences) or other non-numeric data present for sure, in some field referenced by your script, program, or procedure.

The cure is either to state the non-numeric data as 'typed' i.e. to state its data type, e.g. String, etc. Somewhat in this fashion, vaguely:

String phvalue1 = "Acidic";

(I am using somewhat Java-like syntax in that statement.)

...or the other cure, is to not reference the non-numeric or String-type data, in your calculations.
