    I am creating a calculation in a report which occassionally creates a
    negative number. Is there any way I can place a 0 in this field if a
    negative number is generated?

    IIF ((yourcalculation)<0, 0, (yourcalculation))

    replace both instances of (yourcalculation) with your calculation. If you
    are doing your calculation in code, you can simplify just by using an

    If ... Then
    ....
    End If

    structure instead of the IIF, but the IIF will work in a Control Source
    expression, too.

    Use an Unbound control.
    Set it's control source to:

    =IIf([FieldA]-[FieldB]>0,0,[FieldA]-[FieldB])

    Where [FieldA]-[FieldB] represents whatever your actual calculation
    is.

    D,
    Place this calculation in your field...
    =IIF(YourCalculation < 0, 0, YourCalculation)
    that should do it.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
