|Output||The name of the field containing the result of the arithmetic operation.|
In this example, which uses fields of data collected from website traffic, a new field named x-page-duration is calculated by subtracting x-last-pv-timestamp from x-timestamp, then adding 1. The output is calculated only if the user-defined field x-last-pv-timestamp (which represents the timestamp of a visitor’s last page view), is populated, or “not empty.”
For information about the Not Empty condition, see Conditions.
