Getting object attributes as values for the rule file

Hi there, just one question from a newbie;

I want to use my building height from my object attribute (from shapefile) to recalculate/estimate the number of floors in the building.
To do this I use:

attr BUILDING_H = 0.0 (this works, I now can use BUILDING_H to extrude etc.)

but as soon as I try something like:

numFloors = floor(BUILDING_H/3) it doesn't work anymore since in the rule file BUILDING_H is 0.0 obviously.

Now I tried:

attr Height = getObjectAttr(BUILDING_H) but this doesn't work.

How do I get the attribute to be useable for calculations in the rule file?
