rpt.qty in repeat region relations

Good everyone

Regarding relations in drawing tables with repeated
regions. i want to use rpt.qty in a formula to calculate
the total weight. the parameter is asm.mbr.tank_m_weight,
and the formula that i need is

x=asm.mbr.tank_m_weight*rpt.qty

any help people?
Thanks in advance and regards

i use Pro E/WF4

i managed and made it work

for further reference to whom who ever wants to do this,
here is how i made it work.

First, you go to your repeated region and define the
report parameter =>>

go to Report Parameter, rpt, rel, User Defined

then create your user defined Parameter, let us call it X

then, from Relations=>> Table, Repeated Region, Relations
and select your region

A relation Box will open

Now from there you type
x=rpt_qty*asm_mbr_tank_m_weight

Have a nice day everyone

I have tried the above mentioned method to report the consolidated mass of each item in the BOM table. I am partially successful in my attempt. The following are the hurdles I am facing
1. The system parameter "asm_mbr_weight" is a parameter of "UNKNOWN" type.
2. The user defined parameter "X" is a "STRING" type of parameter.

Hence, I am unable to change the number of decimal places to be displayed in the BOM table. The parameter types are frozen and hence, an user can not modify them. Can anybody help me out?

The actual weight parameter is PRO_MP_MASS. This does assume that you have the correct material assigned to the model.

You will find it if you open the parameters - there is a drop-down near the OK button, with the option Main / Reported Mass Properties / Alternate Mass Properties.
