[SOLVED] Division of record count
I'm trying to create the following compute:

(( CNT.IsCertified + CNT.NOT_CERTIFIED) / ( CNT.ROSTERID - CNT.IsReleased)) * 100

Even though the counts of the fields are greater than 0, I always get a 0 back. I think it has something to do with the field type, but not sure how to fix it. Tried changing the IsCertified, NOT_CERTIFIED, IsReleased to Decimal, but it didn't help.

Thanks

Hi AmiSol,
check if following code helps, else if you could provide some sample code using car file

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
COMPUTE PCT/D10.2%=(CNT.CAR +CNT.COUNTRY) / (CNT.MODEL-CNT.CAR) * 100;
BY COUNTRY
END

Ami,

What is the format of your result field?

CNT. is going to give you I5.
look at each variable's content separately, and you'll be able to figure out why the formula is giving you an undesired results. do the basic research.

susannah-I'm new to WebFocus - is there a way to convert the data type of a formula from I5 to decimal from the expression editor pane?

i have no idea what an expression editor pane is, but sure. easy. just a define, as in jvb's example. but first you have to do your research, what do these 4 fields actually contain? print out each of them and just look.
CNT.IsCertified
CNT.NOT_CERTIFIED
CNT.ROSTERID
CNT.IsReleased

ok, I figured it out - I had to remove the cnt. from the fields as they were define fields and the aggregation takes place on the report (sum).
