# Error on Printing Divided Values

edited 2011-10-25
Hi Guys,

I have to a get a value from Two values. If I want to get X I want to get it like Y/Z. There is an issue. If Y and Z are Zero the X value Prints like "#ERROR". If Both the values are Zero I want to get X also as Zero. Can any one provide me a solution on this. Any help will be appreciated.

• this is math, not programming...
example:
if n <> 0 and m <> 0
n/m = x

if n= 0 and m <> 0
n/m = 0

if n<>0 and m = 0
division by zero: impossible

if n= 0 and m= 0
zero divided by zero: indefinite (i don't know if it's correct english)

the correct value for you should be ERROR (mathematically talking), but if you want zero if the division errors out, then just do
```if m <> 0 then
x := n/m
else
x := 0;
```

How to write it under Value property of RTC Report?
• with an IIF(....) statement...but it's simpler if you just do it in nav: calculate it in a variable, and show the variable in the report

• Ya. U R Correct. But I have to perform Two functions. One is to Print X and One is IF Y and Z = 0 I have to print X also as 0. Please Belias Provide me a solution.
• I already provided it: create "x" variable in nav, calculate it with the code i wrote above, put the variable in the right section in classic client, set the expression of a textbox in the rdlc as =Fields!x.Value

I don't know how to explain you more than this :-k

• Hi I have tried this Codes to assign a value to DecPrice Variable.but Its executing the Else Part only.
XXXXX.GET;

XXXXX.SETRANGE("Qty",XXXXX."Qty");
DecCost := XXXXX."Cost" * XXXXX."YQuantity";
IF (XXXXX."Qty" <> 0) THEN
DecPrice :=(DecCost/(XXXXX."Qty"))

ELSE
DecPrice := 1;

Can Some one provide me a solution on this. Any Help will be appreciated.

So what does that tell you then? That the IF part of the statement is returning a FALSE, or XXXX.Qty is equal to zero. It's easy to check with the debugger.
• "XXXXX.SETRANGE("Qty",XXXXX."Qty");"

May be you need to double check the syntax of your code...
• perhaps qty is a flowfield? then you need to use calcfields, it's hard to tell with the information given.

also XXXXX.GET;

isn't getting anything unless it's some setup table
