Field Function shows an error

I am trying to write a vector field function to calculate 17/(Velocity^2)
I have tried
Both have failed. Is this because vector division is not possible, or some other error?
However when I use a single dollar Velocity it shows assembly code.
Please help me asap.

There is no such thing as vector division.
I'm guessing you want to divide by the magnitude of the velocity vector? STAR-CCM+ provides two ways to calculate the magnitude of a vector:
vector magnitude: mag($$u)
vector magnitude squared: mag2($$u)
So for you, the most straightforward expression is: 17/mag2($$Velocity)
For more, see STAR-CCM+ help:
