- Don,

Well, your original question WAS overwhelming ;-)

This post (and what follows it) could be of some help:

Larry Thomas dug into calculations with NoteTab a while back. He

lives on...

For your specific situation you could look into MOD maybe, it gives

you the remainder: 395 MOD 60 = 35... I really cannot help you with

the specific use of all the functions.

I recall you saying you always want to round down to a whole number.

The following 2 operators appear to always give the same result by

rounding down.

^$Calc(FLOOR(395/60))$

^$Calc(INT(395/60);0)$
