# Crystal reports formula

Posted on 2011-09-23

Hello,

I have a formula that is not working.  This formula is returning a value of 0 when it should be 0.19.

(DistinctCount ({qryCOQ.CSIID}, {qryCOQ.CSIIssueDepartment}))/(DistinctCount ({qryCOQ.JobNumber}, {@Date}, "monthly"))

I ran each section by itselt and the results were:

DistinctCount ({qryCOQ.CSIID}, {qryCOQ.CSIIssueDepartment})  = gave me 16
DistinctCount ({qryCOQ.JobNumber}, {@Date}, "monthly") = gave me 84.

Maybe I need to use the EvaluateAfter() command?  I tried it though, and it gave me zero also.  I might not be using it right.

Thanks,
Joel

You are doing integer division

(CDbl(DistinctCount ({qryCOQ.CSIID}, {qryCOQ.CSIIssueDepartment})))/(DistinctCount ({qryCOQ.JobNumber}, {@Date}, "monthly"))

Another thought is check the formatting to ensure you aren't formatting with 0 decimals or rounding to 0 decimals

It was the number of decimals.  You are the man.  Or woman?!

mlmcc,

I know that this may not be important, since it wasn't the problem, but why did you say that his formula was integer division?  Am I missing something?

Genius123,

If you got the idea to check the number of decimals from mlmcc's post, then you should accept his post as the solution and award him the points.  If you found it on your own before you saw his post, then you should mention that, just so that we know (of course you could still award him the points for trying to help, but that's up to you).

It was just a thought since they were both counts and integers.  I have been doing a lot of VB programming and then it matters.  Crystal probably handles it differently.

CR doesn't make the result of a calculation integer just because the values in the calculation are integers.  I thought just maybe I was missing something, like maybe using DistinctCount in the calculation was affecting the results, but I don't think so.
