In a formula I am comparing 2 number to evaluate if (%a >= %b).  It seems to work - but getting errors some. (Both are numbers)

if {@ratio2}>={@.Goal2} then "Pass"
else "Fail"

RATIO:
local buildit as number
local truncit as number
local strit as string
If {Core_.DE} = 0 Then
     formula = "n/a"
Else
    buildit = ({Core_.NU}/{Core_.DE})*100
    truncit = round(buildit, 0)
    strit = totext(truncit, 0)
    formula = strit
end if
     tonumber(Round(({Core_.NU}/{Core_.DE})*100, 0))


Goal:

If {@Metric Name}= "Orders" Then 0.3 Else
If {@Metric Name}= "Medication" Then 0.4 Else

Thanks

What is the MetricName formula?

The GOAL formula appears to be incomplete.

What errors are you getting?

Can any of the database fields be NULL?

Are you using a mix of VB and Crystal syntax in the formulas?

I don't use Basic syntax, but isn't the ratio formula setting the result to be a string (either "n/a", or the string variable strit) ?

 If the goal formula is producing a number, then you'll get an error when you try to compare the results from the two formulas.

 First guess:
 Maybe you want to change
     formula = "n/a"
  to
     formula = 0

 And change
    formula = strit
 to
     formula = truncit


 And you should probably remove the last line from the ratio formula (the ToNumber function after the "end if"), since I don't think it does anything.
