To find the weight per millilter for a liquid product simply enter the measures found on the label, then manually type (recommended) the gram per mL figure into the "Grams per mL if liquid " line under the product name above. Do the same for cost per mL. If you don't use a liquid, the cost per gram is calculated from only the Cost and Weight Measure values. IMPORTANT: Optionally, you can use the Widows clipboard to copy the figure instead of manually typing it, but DO NOT use the clipboard's Paste function, instead use the Paste Special menu option and select the "Values " radio button from the list of Paste options.
