I have the following code that shows me a value of 4.0, but I know that is wrong. When I calculate 1791 / 365 I get 4.906849315068493. My value shows up at 4.0. At the least I would like it to calculate out to 5.0. Still it would be nice to see 4.90. What am I doing wrong?

                Int32 bb = (Int32)DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "DAYS"); // This value calculates to 1791
                double cc = bb / 365;
                lbl.Text = cc.ToString();

Does this help.  (You were dividing two integers before)
double cc = bb / 365.0;

ps.  You might also want ToString("0.00"); if you wanted it formatting to 2 decimal places.
