Hello,

I am getting the above error when I run this formula:

{vw_reporting_biannualaudit.Drug Schedule}={?@Drug_Schedule}

and  

if  isnull({?@Drug_Schedule}) or not numerictext({?@Drug_Schedule}) then
       0
else
       tonumber({?@Drug_Schedule})

The last part of the formula (tonumber({?@Drug_Schedule}) gives the error.

I have set the @Drug_Schedule parameter to number.

If I set the @Drug_Schedule  parameter to a string it will give me the error "A number is required here" at the top of the formula for the @Drug_Schedule so either way I get an error.

Thanks for any help,

Mike
