If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Try a view DETAILS and see if that is what you are looking for. I am not really understanding what you are trying to do as almost every view seperates all the drives with lines. I would try each view till you find the one you are looking for and see if this is what you are trying to do.

This will give you what you want. Open my computer, click view, select details.
