The Ninox manual says, "absolute( x ) calculates the absolute amount of x, that is, x without a sign.
Example: absolute( -10 ) = absolute( 10 ) = 10."
I'm trying to use "absolute" in a formula and get the message, "Function is not defined."
Formula's very simple: absolute(x - y), where x and y are number fields.
I've also tried absolute(-12), just to check it's working, and get the same error.
What am i missing?
Thank you, Julian. I thought i tried abs, but i must've got mixed up along the way.
I'll take the link you gave as the final word in future. I was aware of it, but i thought other pages in the manual would be ok too.
My mistake. The following page not only conflicts with it on abs(olute): https://ninoxdb.de/en/manual/calculations/mathematical-functions , but also round up (ceil) and round down (floor).
Who knows what other conflicting information it contains?
