So let’s say I have an input channel that is constantly changing its value, but I want the value be deducted by its own value which is saved in a calculated input channel when I click a button.
So let’s say at 1seconds the input 101 is 5
at 2seconds the input 101 is 7
I want it so that at second 1 if I click the button, the current value i.e. 5 is saved as a value in my calculated input channel 102 using the formula Val(101), I set input 101 formula to be Cnl(101)- Val(102)
Do you have any advice on how to configure the button so that it does that?

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around this, so basically can I set a formula in a calculated variable to only update when I click a button, I have tried setting the calculated variable which uses Val() to not active but it still updates constantly.
I think, you don’t need Auto Control Module for this purpose.
Create an output channel, and define this channel number for a button.
When button clicked, a command is sent, and a formula of the output channel is calculated.
The formula may be like this: SetVal(102, Val(101))
where 101 is the input channel you need to save
102 is the input channel of the calculated real type that stores the saved value.
