I have may calculations inside SQL Server views

Like.... SUM(ProductCountAct) /  SUM(ProductCountStd) ...............works fine

All work ok, but when i need to include extra brackets none of them work

(SUM(ProductCountAct) - SUM(ScrapCount)) / SUM(ProductCountAct)..........does not work

I am sure it must be something very simple but any help most welcome

>>does not work
Does that mean an error or not what you expect ?

Does not error, outputs a zero and the answer is not zero, it should be 0.98

Thanks

OK.  Are any of the fields you sum integer (not floating point) values ?  (and that the variable in your code is a floating point type, not an integer type).

This zero result can be due to the compiler treating it as integer maths rather than floating point maths.  (Or you are loading the result into an integer variable with truncation).


ps.  I assume you have checked where the opening and matching closing braces are - not that a closing brace is in the wrong location.
