Hi,

I'm grabbing some variables and doing some maths with them for the results to then be displayed. I've got this working fine. But if I have two prices, e.g £16.50 and £6.00, take them away from each other, I am getting the result of £10.5 and I would like £10.50 if possible?

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks,
AJ
if pricewas="n/a" then
pricesave="n/a"
else
pricesave=pricewas - costsqm
end if

That looks like VB, so:


pricesave = Round(pricewas - costsqm), 2)

Duh, wrong function.
pricesave = FormatNumber((pricewas - costsqm), 2)

You need an extra parentheses in the beginning, right after FormatNumber.

Sorry its taken me a while to get back to your reply on this mraluminumsiding, I've been away. Thanks for the reply though.

What do you mean by parentheses? I'm not so hot on ASP, nor SQL Server.

Cheers
