I wrote a week or two ago seeking a solution to a problem I had. The

list has always been most helpful, but for some reason this time I got

zero responses, so perhaps I asked the wrong way. So I guess I will try

something simpler and then piece it together.

If say I take the number 395, I want to divide it by 60 ... and I get

6.58333333

I want to round this down to 6 (ie toss the remainder).

Is there a math function to do this?

I suppose if I made it a string I could toss everything including and

after the period.

I was using:

^!Set %name_variable%=^$Calc(^%seconds%/60;0)$

This seems to create rounding with anything .5 or greater going up.

Nothing in help I am finding documents this.

I also find a ROUND function in math help, but again no explaination of

how it works. How might this compare to the rounddown() function in

excel for example? That program offers roundup(), rounddown() and round().

Am I missing something in help?

Is there a way to simplify what I am doing?
