I have 2 fields in a text object (see below)

{1Sum of @del_ammount_over500K}/{2%totalBalanceOfLoans}

what I would like is to have the above actually be a number not

1,000,000/500,000,000 so I would like it to show as .20 how do I get that division taken literally in a text object?

I am using crystal reports 11 if that makes a difference

So you have to have a formula with the above equation in it ( {1Sum of @del_ammount_over500K}/{2%totalBalanceOfLoans}, then you can put that formula almost anywhere (including a text object).

It doesn't actually do the math/algebra

I just get 100/500 in the test box not .2 so me just typing "/" in the text object doesn't get it to do the division operation? is there an EVAL() function that I need to wrap it in?

You don't get it.  Separate formula to do the calculation.  Then put that formula in the text box. Unfortunately I cannot send you a sample.  I tried including screen shots, but they are not coming through.

OK I think I understand what you are saying, but here is my problem

the denominator (Sum of @del_ammount_over500k) is a running total so it does not show up in any of the fields
for me to build the formula

if you like you can email me at r.l.c99@live.ca

I am wondering if this should be in the technical question group?

Put it in a formula and go from there.
