CRV10 - I have a report with one group, LOCATION.  In that group footer I have a formula that calculates turnover percentage.  I already have detail suppressed.   How can I suppress the group if the turnover percentage < 10 percent ?

The formula is:  
if Sum ({@terms}, {@pl and dept and name}) = 0 then 0 else

Truncate (Sum ({@terms}, {@pl and dept and name})) / Sum ({@headcount EndofMth}, {@pl and dept and name}) * 100

Try this

Click REPORT   -->  SELECTION FORMULA --> GROUP

if Sum ({@terms}, {@pl and dept and name}) = 0 then 
     False
Else
     (Truncate (Sum ({@terms}, {@pl and dept and name})) / Sum ({@headcount EndofMth}, {@pl and dept and name}) * 100) >= 10

Thank you!  I got the "Division by zero" error with the Truncate portion of the formula hi-lighted.
