Hello Everyone,

I am working on a report and have a formula which will calculate a goal amount.  This is the formula
({#LYSales} + ({#LYSales} * {@goalpercent}))

This works fine, the problem is when @goalpercent is a negative percentage.... it will just calculate it as a positive percentage.
How can I calculate it as a negative percentage???

Thanks,

Bill

Thanks,

Bill

Try this:

if (({#LYSales} + ({#LYSales} * {@goalpercent}))) <0
  then ({#LYSales} + ({#LYSales} * {@goalpercent})) *-1
    else ({#LYSales} + ({#LYSales} * {@goalpercent}))
0
