    I should clarify that I’ve tried both modifying the “weighted total” column and creating a new “weighted calculated column”, and I get the following error page:

    “java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: “”
    For reference, the Error ID is 3c945254-c30c-41b2-a4a2-f648772629a7.”

    When I click “okay”, I get a pop-up box that tells me one of the categories I selected doesn’t exist, but the categories are all ones I created using the grade center manager.

    I want to assign differing weights to individual categories in the grade center, but I haven’t been able to figure out how to do that yet. What is the process for assigning weight value?
