[Quoted] I have a couple of questions i was hoping that someone could help me with!

  1. Using format masks, i was hoping to use the 'V' symbol to divide by 100, i.e. to display 834.4 for a value of 834,400. So far, it seems that the 'V' symbol can only be used to multiply by 1000, not divide;

Any suggestions or advice? If we can't do it using the 'V' symbol, then we will embed a divide by 1000 within the SQL, but we don't want to do this if possible.

[Quoted] 2) On PAGE BREAKS: We are trying to develop a retail-industry report in which we report numerical values for a merchandise-hierarchy driven information (i.e. Dept/Class/Subclass)... WE are trying to Page Break based on department by following the Oracle Reports help instructions, and are having some difficulty. Does anyone have insight on this?

Thanks for any help,
