Prev: Where is the startup manager in 2007Next: none From: stonewall1974 on 5 Jun 2010 14:36 I have a table that consists of a field named Minutes, multiple entries for a specific individual may occur for any given day. I am placing a calculation in a query that will break the minutes into 15 increments by using the formula [Minutes]/15. The result value is coming up in correct when the units are rounded; however, some values are rounded up. Example follows: Minutes for a specific record; 5, 90, 50 for the same day = .333, 6, 3.333 respectively. In the report the total = 9.667, which should reflect 9 only; in the report it rounded to 10 The next record reflect Minutes for a specific record;45, 70, 50, 15 for the same day = 3.000, 4.667, 3.333, 1 respectively. In the report the total = 12, which is correct as 4.667 + 3.333 = 1. What is the best way to handle this so that total minutes are calculated and reflected correctly? I did try changing the properties, it did not work. -- stonewall1974 From: John W.

Would you want 9.99999985 to become 9, or 10? To truncate use the Integer Divide operator instead of dividing and then getting a fraction - that is, [Minutes] \ 15. The backslash will return: 30\15 = 2 31\15 = 2 44\15 = 2 45\15 = 3 -- John W. Vinson [MVP]  |  Pages: 1 Prev: Where is the startup manager in 2007Next: none
