[SOLVED] Precision in variables
Hello,

Seems I'm having trouble with the precision of a variable. I learned about DMPPRECION but I'm not getting the desired results. Here is some code:

...
SET DMPRECISION = 5
RUN
GRAPH FILE OFFICER_METRIC
...
-SET &BAR_MAX_1 = IF &A GT &B THEN &A ELSE &B;  //Just using A, B and C to keep it simple here
-SET &BAR_MAX_2 = IF &C GT &BAR_MAX_1 THEN &C ELSE &BAR_MAX_1;
-SET &BAR_MAX_FINAL = &BAR_MAX_2 * 1.1;

-TYPE BAR_MAX_1 is &BAR_MAX_1           //Spits out 0.29
-TYPE BAR_MAX_2 is &BAR_MAX_2           //Spits out 0.29
-TYPE BAR_MAX_FINAL is &BAR_MAX_FINAL   //Spits out 0
...


BAR_MAX_FINAL should be 0.319 right?, but it seems its ignoring decimals or taking the floor (I don't know). I tried to multiply by 11 and divide by 10 but the results are the same as above. I tried several other things with no success.

Any tips here?

Thank you,

I've no idea what this code is doing. Could you give us an example we can run using sample data?

Nevermind... I didn't put the "-" in front of the RUN. Damnit!
