Postby yanzco » Sun Jan 25, 2015 9:15 pm

hi guys... any way i can make a number in to an absolute value?..

if its positive. just leave it alone..
but if its negative.. remove negative..

edit.. is Abs = term for absolute value ?

Math "Abs([Minindaldb.Orders.OTotalAmount]-[Minindaldb.Orders.OConsumable])+[Minindaldb.Orders.OCharge]-[Minindaldb.Orders.ODiscount]" "2" "[DueAmount]"
