Last Modified: 2015-01-20
I have a price field that I want to use minus a discount

{PRICING.BVRTLPRICE01} - {?Discount %}

{?Discount %} is my parameter which can be from 1-100

This is what I need
If {PRICING.BVRTLPRICE01} = 0.00 then 0.00 else {PRICING.BVRTLPRICE01} - {?Discount %}

{PRICING.BVRTLPRICE01} * (1 - {?Discount %})

The formula does not work.

Here is a sample I did
60 * (1-50) = 2940 but that should be 30

60 - 50% = 30

That means the % is not stored as %.

So use
{PRICING.BVRTLPRICE01} * (1 - {?Discount %}/100)
