Hi Guys


This is just weird

What the following is doing is putting two values together e.g. 3 +3 =33 not 6 as expected
This just started happening, this was in an existing working script

doc.totalAH_1 = doc.CarriedOverAH_1(0) + doc.AllowanceAH_1(0) 'Calculate the used vacation  days
                                    doc.totalAH_2 = doc.CarriedOverAH_2(0) + doc.AllowanceAH_2(0)  'Calculate the remaining vacation days

That says that the two fields are of text and being concatenated

doc.totalAH_1 = @TextToNumber(doc.CarriedOverAH_1(0)) + @TextToNumber(doc.AllowanceAH_1(0)) 'Calculate the used vacation  days
doc.totalAH_2 = @TextToNumber(doc.CarriedOverAH_2(0)) + @TextToNumber(doc.AllowanceAH_2(0))  'Calculate the remaining vacation days

oh I totally missed to see doc.

doc.totalAH_1 = cint(doc.CarriedOverAH_1(0)) + cint(doc.AllowanceAH_1(0)) 'Calculate the used vacation  days
doc.totalAH_2 = cint(doc.CarriedOverAH_2(0)) + cint(doc.AllowanceAH_2(0))  'Calculate the remaining vacation days
