I need help with a calculation for percentage.

I have tried this several ways, but the format is not turning out right. I am trying to calculate a percentage charged by my merchant services.

Field 1 "Charged" ($)

Field 2 "Funded" ($)

Field 3 "CC Charge" (%)

So in Excel it would look like CC Charge=SUM(Funded/Charged)

So it would look like this: Charged:$100.00 Funded:$97.86 CC Charge:2.14%

But that isn't working in Filemaker.

Please help, this is kicking my butt. I don't know if it is the way I am formatting the fields or defining them, or my calculations or all of the above. But I have tried do to fix this for a week!

Try =

1 - ( net / gross )

Are you sure about this?

That did it. Thanks bunch. Is there a book of scripts and calculations for FileMaker somewhere? I really don't get the way some things are figured in FM.

To answer your question about the excel scrip; yes it worked, but if I remember right the result was always a negative percentage.(-2.23%)
