Hey all,
Just wondering how exactly you go about modding numbers in visual logic. I have a variable holding an input of a number. I want to basically divide this by 1000 to find out how many times 1000 goes into the number but i also need to Mod the variable to find the left over amount after the thousand has gone into this. i tried to do

Variable name = Thousand. then the assignment box (Variable name holding initial input)- NumberNeeded Mod(1000)
its the mod part im having problems with. How should i be modding it as i must be doing it incorrectly.
Thanks

Hello bdaking and welcome to GTG,

You're on the right track, let me give you a bit of direction. I didn't completely follow what you posted, but I'll show you an example of using the VB modulus function:

Suppose the initial number is 54100, we'll give it a variable name of Numerator. To get the Mod value (ModVal) using a denominator of 1000, we'd do the following:
`ModVal = Numerator Mod 1000`
This will divide 54100 by 1000 and return the remainder. ModVal should now have a value of 100.

That's it! Hope it helps.

Ax
