AndrewBeres Posted May 8 Share Posted May 8 Hello, I am wondering if there is a data tag syntax guide floating around out there that I have not been able to find. I understand from other forum posts that worksheet functions are possibly accessible from data tags now? If this is true, I am not able to get them to function. Any help is greatly appreciated. Here is my specific issue: We have a data tag used for life safety plan calculations, pretty simple. We input the area factor and the use for each space and use the spaces area to calculate the number of occupants and display that in the tag. This works well, however we want to round the occupants up to the next integer value when there is a fraction. I have been able to round the number down, but per standard practice when calculating occupants you always take the number up to the next whole number(since you cannot have a fraction of an occupant in the building). Inorder to complete the math for the number of occupants, we do (space.area) / (load factor). I have seen people add .49 to this so that the number will always round up, but after I do the addition of .49 I cannot seem to get the number to round. I have tried a few different ways to complete the =round() but none have work for me in a data tag. Here is my tag field definition: #Space#.#AREA#/#Space#.#11_Proposed Area# +0.49 Here is the tag for reference (in this case i want the 8.743 to display as 9): Again, if there is a syntax guide out there I would love to have it for reference, otherwise any help with this specific problem is greatly appreciated.
