it's a little dirty, but this should work:


local stringvar checkprice:=ToText(table.price, 2);

If { MID(checkprice,len(checkprice),1) = "0" or MID(checkprice,len(checkprice),1) = "5"} Then
   //put whatever you want here, it's true
Else
   // it's false
End If

Does price have decimals?  If so the formula above should work but it would be easier with RIGHT instead of MID

local stringvar checkprice:=ToText(table.price, 2);

If { Right(checkprice,1) = "0" or MID(checkprice,1) = "5"} Then
   //put whatever you want here, it's true
Else
   // it's false
End If

Open in new window


If prices are in dollars (no cents then)

local stringvar checkprice:=ToText(table.price, 0);

If { Right(checkprice,1) = "0" or MID(checkprice,1) = "5"} Then
   //put whatever you want here, it's true
Else
   // it's false
End If

Open in new window

Converting the price to a string, as in the posts above, is the most flexible solution.  Then you can check for any digits you want.

 But since you're specifically looking for 0 and 5, Mod is another option.

 If your field is an integer:

({price field} Mod 5) = 0


 If your field has 2 decimal places and you want to check the last decimal place:

(({price field} * 100) Mod 5) = 0
