Hi Richard,
Is there no way to set DQSD to preform normal arithmetic
functions?
You can use the VBSX function as a wrapper to force VB-style mathematic
operations. Here's an example:
vbsx =cdbl(2156737.51 - 16123.85)
You can add an alias for this to localaliases.txt as so:
m|vbsx

I tried it again cutting and pasting it verify that I was not corrupting the
data. I also tried;
2156737.51 - 16123.85
Which netted the same result.
So from the other emails on this subject I can see that I definitely
misunderstood about DQSD's ability to perform calculations in a normal

Kim,
Uhhh that doesnt sound right to me. I subtracted 3 different values from
another value and got the same result twice. Also two of the results are
flat out wrong.
I could understand if I had used some kind of hokey notation but its a
straight up math problem X-Y. When performed in a

Hi Richard,

Oops, I didn't see your results were identical for the first two cases.
I tried it here;
2156737.51 - 16123.81 = 2140613.67
2156737.51 - 16123.83 =
