Does the field only contain "numbers"? If so, look at FUNCTION NUMVAL in the manual.

If not, let us know what it can contain.

or multiply by 100 - provided it is a numeric field with numerics in it.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Hello,

or multiply by 100 - provided it is a numeric field with numerics in it.
And make sure the target field has no decimal places defined.
Hope this helps,

Unfortunately, any "maths2 with something that "looks like" this, 150000.00, ie has an actual fullstop/period, will go BANG! S0C7 :-)
