How does it work in the search window?
Select Create column in the search window toolbar, then select the Multiplication, product operation. You need to specify at least two arguments (Multiply and by). You can add as many by arguments as required.
|Multiply (mandatory)||integer, float|
|by (mandatory)||integer, float, duration|
The data type of the values in the new column is integer / float (when you multiply an integer or float by another number) or duration (when you multiply an integer by a duration).
my.lookuplist.expenses table, we want to multiply the values in the budget column of our table by 2.

How does it work in LINQ?
Use the operator
as... and add the operation syntax to create the new column. These are the valid formats of the Multiplication, product operation:
number1 * number2 * number3...
mul(number1, number2, number3...)
integer * duration
You can copy the following LINQ scripts and try the above example on the
my.lookuplist.expenses table. As said above, keep in mind that you must download and upload this lookup file to your Devo domain.
from my.lookuplist.expenses select spent * 2 as `spent*2`
from my.lookuplist.expenses select mul(spent, 2) as `spent*2`
