Ratio calculation

I have a simple ratio calculation to perform as seen below:

if (this.getField("HiBrach").value=="")

{

event.value="";

}

else

{event.value=this.getField("HiAnk").value / this.getField("HiBrach").value;

}

"HiBrach" is derived from multiple (3) fields with a maximum value calculation performed before the ratio operation.

This works no problem.

However, how does the script change if "HiAnk" is also made up multiple fields with a Maximum value calculation.

I haven't been able to solve this!?

Just make sure the calculation order is correct. That's all that maters.

It doesn't change at all... Is it not working?

Hi Thom,

Thanks for the response.

In checking the calculation order as suggested, I discovered a syntax error!!!

I did have to adjust the order however, thanks.

It's always something because code is complicated and must be exact.
