Decimal into Visual Studio field


I am trying to modify a field that currently displays numbers as integers "4/4" to display with a decimal. But, only the numerator, ideally it would look like "4.2/4" with only one decimal place.

=Int(Avg(DateDiff("d",Fields!ORDER_DATE.Value,Fields!SHIPPED_DATE.Value))) & " / " & (Int(Avg(Abs(DateDiff("d",Fields!PROMISE_DATE.Value,Fields!ORDER_DATE.Value)))))

You could use Round() on the numerator instead of Int(). See code snippet below. This example rounds to 1 decimal place.
 =Round(Avg(DateDiff("d",Fields!ORDER_DATE.Value,Fields!SHIPPED_DATE.Value)), 1) & " / " & (Int(Avg(Abs(DateDiff("d",Fields!PROMISE_DATE.Value,Fields!ORDER_DATE.Value)))))

Thank you! I work at a non-profit association as the sole developer, doing mainly Microsoft BI and with help only from an IT consultant who manages the servers. It can be lonely sometimes, and EE lets me stay in touch with other people that speak the same language. :-)
