I am trying to create a calculated attribute that is the difference between two integer attributes, namely "15hr" and "14hr". I have removed non-zero values and this problem still persists. Here is my process:

    My dad figured it out! It was the numbers in my attribute names!

    neither numbers, white spaces nor brackets are allowed in attribute names. For now you need to rename them. In the next version we will have another way to handle them.
