Yes. These divisions are floating-point, no matter what division symbol is used:  float/float [e.g. 2.42/4.29]  float/integer [e.g. 2.42/4]  integer/float [e.g. 2/4.29]  dim as double floatResult : floatResult = integer/integer [e.g. 8/9] In , "floatness" implied by the destination of the expression overrules the "integerness" of the right hand side. Numerator and denominator are converted to doubles and divided on the fpu. Robert P.
