Hello once again

I been trying to make a calculation for the conversion of weight into ml's. Normally I do this by dividing the the weight by 1.026 and the results is the amount in ml's ( 1.026 is the density of blood, plasma, serum )

I have a field for weight and another for volume I want to input the weight and have the result show in volume after being calculated.

Not sure why you're having a problem with this. Simply define Volume as a calculation field, enter the formula =

`Weight / 1.026`

and set the result type to Number.

1. You did not mention anything about rounding in your original question;
2. I don't know what "round to nearest decimal" means; usually you round a number to a given precision - i.e. a number of decimal places;
3. You can format the field to display the result as Decimal, with a fixed number of decimals, while retaining the original full precision for further calculations;
4. If you really want to round the result, you can use the Round() function, e.g. =
`Round ( Weight / 1.026 ; 3 )`

to round to 3 decimal places.
