Ok, I just saw your initial email and saw that you are calling it form
So $cinst.$objs.r_test_1225.$width should work.. Not sure why you need to
add the report name, maybe the line is corrupted. You can re-type the line
of code again.

Hi Andrew,

I don't understand the use of $cinst in your case.

You could try this syntax and see if it works with you as well:

Calculate  $clib.$reports.r_test.$objs.r_test_1225.$width as 4.833

After some messing around, In order to set the field width correctly on the
report, you need to include the the report class name as well. (strange as
it is not required for things like setting visibility etc)

So it will look like this:

Calculate $cinst.r_test.$objs.r_test_1225.$width as 4.833
