wierd result: CurAfterWitholdingTax = CurGross * 0.23

wierd result: CurAfterWitholdingTax = CurGross * 0.23

CurAfterWitholdingTax = CurGross * CurPercentWithHoldingTax

so basic but is my logic wrong, i get for CurAfterWitholdingTax the value of -42500 or a negative number similar to that. the value of  CurPercentWithHoldingTax is 0.23 which is grabbed from a forms text box.

I am not suprised if the answer is obvious to you all, but its been 3 years since programming in VBA!

RE: wierd result: CurAfterWitholdingTax = CurGross * 0.23



CurAfterWitholdingTax the value of -42500

CurPercentWithHoldingTax is 0.23

What is the value of CurGross?

looks more like a " ... Somebody done somebody wrong ... " song.

The math presented does not provide the values.




RE: wierd result: CurAfterWitholdingTax = CurGross * 0.23

well i test the sequence in a regular calculator and got the correct results

gross(55000) * PercentWithholdRate(.23) = taxwithheld


RE: wierd result: CurAfterWitholdingTax = CurGross * 0.23

so, first post incorrect / incomplete.

possible overwrite of results between your (expected) calc and post?

variables changed elsewhere in process?
