Math Calaculation code

Hi Experts,

Im trying to perform the below calc which is in a loop,

FlxGridInvoiceInfo(rowskip_markup, "MARKUP") = Val(FlxGridInvoiceInfo(rowskip_markup, "EX_VALUE") * Val("QTY") / 100) * Val(Markup.Text)

FlxGridInvoiceInfo(rowskip_markup, "MARKUP") uses the row and column name "MARKUP", I just cant get the calc right....

FlxGridInvoiceInfo(rowskip_markup, "MARKUP") is a position on the grid
Val("QTY")  Is a column, which uses the same row as line above.
Val(Markup.Text) is a test box on the form.

And what's the problem? Do you get any exception? Can you post any error codes or messages?

Just comes up with 0 as the value

I think the problem is in the Val("QTY") part.

Even if the QTY column is in the same row, you are calling to the Val function passing only the string value "QTY" as parameter, not the real cell value for that column.

Try qualifying correctly the QTY value:

FlxGridInvoiceInfo(rowskip_markup, "MARKUP") = Val(FlxGridInvoiceInfo(rowskip_markup, "EX_VALUE") * Val(FlxGridInvoiceInfo(rowskip_markup, "QTY")) / 100) * Val(Markup.Text)

Hope that helps.
