Hi @rinair ,

 

Your function and parameter are configured as it should. The only thing you need to change is your [Value] format, it needs to be a number format in order to work.

Hi @rinair , the select tool you are using has configured datatype for the column value as V_String, try changing to double ,int64 or any other number datatype and then check if the things workout for you?

Thanks.

hey, thanks for taking time out to help me, i did try your solution, but using Int16 was removing the decimal point which was not serving the purpose, i have to continue with a float or double but thanks for helping!
