Ok I am completely stumped. I have a bunch of fields that need to br rounded to the nearest whole number, even when they are less than... meaning:

1.45
1.76
3.06
5.25

I need ANY numbers who has ANYTHING in the tenths/hundredths to be rounded UP.
So basically what I want to acheive is:

2
2
4
6

This is because the numbers represent a piece of material to be used. If it calls for "3.06", we need to use 4 to get the job done. The current formula is:

{@SumTotal} + ( {@SumTotal} * ({tbl Material.Waste} / 100 ) )

Is this possible to do? Can I round up anything in .xx to the next whole number?

Much thanks in advance for your help!

Hello incendius,

I am assuming that you want to round your current formula.

int({@SumTotal} + ( {@SumTotal} * ({tbl Material.Waste} / 100 ) )+0.999)

OK ummm.. I tried both posible solutions and the code wanted to save with error each time.

{@SumTotal} + ( {@SumTotal} * ({tbl Material.Waste} / 100 ) )

^--- is what I have currently... any ideas on how to make your ideas work? I know basically nothing about CR.

Thanks!

Sweeet! Thanks for the help guys... Stasau's answer worked just right.

All I had to do was replace 'tblLengths.BoardLength' with '@SumTotal'.

Awesome.
