Hi All

Previous question
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/Email/Lotus_Notes/Q_20789973.html

Ok now I want to subtract some numbers if a request is cancelled
Just a foot note
All fields are Number and Computed
If ApprovalStatus = Cancelled then note.TotalDaysOff(0) is reset to 0

      
      If Not doc Is Nothing Then
            doc.HolidaysAH = doc.HolidaysAH(0) - doc.TotalDaysOff(0)
            doc.RemainingAH = doc.RemainingCalc(0) +doc.TotalDaysOff(0)

            doc.ComputeWithForm True, False  
            doc.save True, False
      Else
            Msgbox "No leave document found for this employee"
      End If
      
The above does not work or works inconsitently
I think the best way would be to freate a temp variable grab values and then do the math what do you think

Little bit confused...

when you are setting a value like totalsdaysoff
just set it like this

note.totaldaysoff = 0

also... what do u mean works inconsistently, when does it fail... it;s also better to use cint before doing the math.. something like this:
doc.HolidaysAH = cint(doc.HolidaysAH(0)) - cint(doc.TotalDaysOff(0))
         doc.RemainingAH = cint(doc.RemainingCalc(0)) +cint(doc.TotalDaysOff(0) )

I am not sure if you have given me the correct fields, let me help you to organize it

If note.ApprovalStatus(0) = "Cancelled" then  ' Check this string value is same as that for cancel operation
       note.TotalDaysOff = 0     ' This will be set in the currently opened approval doc
' Get the leave doc handle to this currently selected employee..    
     If Not doc Is Nothing Then
          doc.HolidaysAH = doc.HolidaysAH(0) - doc.TotalDaysOff(0)
          doc.RemainingAH = doc.RemainingCalc(0) + doc.TotalDaysOff(0)
          doc.ComputeWithForm True, False  
          doc.save True, False
     Else
          Msgbox "No leave document found for this employee"
     End If
End If  ' ApprovalStatus Check

James clearly specify what are the results/error that you are getting so that it will facilitate me to give you proper guidance.

Hi Hemanth

I have it working with the following perhaps you could get more info from the code



If Not doc Is Nothing Then
            tmpHolidaysAH = doc.HolidaysAH(0) 'This is the number of days used
            tmpTotal = note.NewDaysTotal(0)    'This is the number of new days booked
            tmpNew = tmpHolidaysAH - tmpTotal  'This will reset the value removing the value that was added when approved
            doc.TotalDaysOffCalc = tmpNew 'This resets the Total days used
            
            tmpRemainingAH = doc.RemainingAH(0) ' This is the number of days remaining
            tmpRemain = tmpTotal + tmpRemainingAH ' This adds the number that was subtracted when the leave was approved
            doc.RemainingCalc = tmpRemain 'This resets the remainig days to what it was prior to the new leave being approved
            doc.RemainingAH = doc.RemaingCalc 'See above
            doc.ComputeWithForm True, False  
            doc.save True, False


Hope this  explains what I need the form to do

I am not sure if I understood the calculation correct ... ultimately I came to this conclusion

      ' Assuming note is the current document handle
      ' doc is the leave document of the employee
      
      tmpHolidaysAH = doc.HolidaysAH(0) 'This is the number of days used
      
      If note.ApprovalStatus(0) = "Cancelled" Then  
            note.NewDaysTotal = 0    'This is the number of new days booked--- which will be 0 if it is not approved
      End If
      
      tmpTotal = note.NewDaysTotal(0)
      tmpNew = tmpHolidaysAH - tmpTotal  'This will reset the value removing the value that was added when approved
      tmpRemainingAH = doc.RemainingAH(0) ' This is the number of days remaining
      tmpRemain = tmpTotal + tmpRemainingAH ' This adds the number that was subtracted when the leave was approved
      doc.TotalDaysOffCalc = tmpNew 'This resets the Total days used      
      doc.RemainingCalc = tmpRemain 'This resets the remainig days to what it was prior to the new leave being approved
      doc.RemainingAH = doc.RemaingCalc 'See above
      doc.ComputeWithForm True, False  
      doc.save True, False
0
