Hi

I'm having a problem with a section of my Query. This is probably because i have NULL fields. So it can't calculate properly.

Because of that, i have this error:

ORA-01476: divisor is equal to zero
01476. 00000 -  "divisor is equal to zero"
*Cause:    
*Action:

How can i fix this so that i just calculate what i can?

Thanks agauin

    when STOP_TYPE = 'DL' and INBOUND = 'I' -- IB POs
    then  TO_CHAR(((TOTAL_IB_MILES/TOTAL_MILES) * (ORDER_WEIGHT/TOTAL_IB_WEIGHT)*FREIGHT_COST),'9,999.99')

It requires some sub-CASE statements to avoid the divide-by-zero error:
CASE
    WHEN STOP_TYPE = 'DL' AND INBOUND = 'N' THEN -- OB POs
        CASE
            WHEN TOTAL_MILES = 0 OR TOTAL_OB_WEIGHT = 0 THEN 0
            ELSE TO_CHAR((((TOTAL_MILES - TOTAL_IB_MILES)/TOTAL_MILES) * (ORDER_WEIGHT/TOTAL_OB_WEIGHT)*FREIGHT_COST),'9,999.99')
        END
    WHEN STOP_TYPE = 'DL' and INBOUND = 'I' THEN -- IB POs
        CASE
            WHEN TOTAL_MILES = 0 OR TOTAL_IB_WEIGHT = 0 THEN 0
            ELSE TO_CHAR(((TOTAL_IB_MILES/TOTAL_MILES) * (ORDER_WEIGHT/TOTAL_IB_WEIGHT)*FREIGHT_COST),'9,999.99')
        END
    WHEN STOP_TYPE = 'DL' and TOTAL_ELAPSED_TIME < '000:00' THEN -- LTL loads
        CASE
            WHEN TOTAL_WEIGHT = 0 THEN 0
            ELSE TO_CHAR(((ORDER_WEIGHT/TOTAL_WEIGHT)*FREIGHT_COST),'9,999.99')
        END
END AS PO_RATE_PRORATION
