Charles,
Thank you for your suggestion. I was using the SQL set function after calculating the total for three months:
$Tot03 = ($AvgH(1) * $AvgH(2) * $AvgH(3))

SET :$Geo03 = :$Tot03 ** (1/:$Root03);

And that works fine. When I try it with 12 month's, the result field is not large enough (set to 63P) and the program errs. Same happens with:
$Tot12 = ($AvgH(1) * $AvgH(2) * $AvgH(3) * $AvgH(4) * $AvgH(5) * $AvgH(6) * $AvgH(7) * $AvgH(8) * $AvgH(9) * $AvgH(10) * $AvgH(11) * $AvgH(12)) ** (1/12);
I think I need to use 'C' because if I declare the result field as "double" I do not have the restriction I do in RPG. Regards, Stephen M. Mooney

RPG supports double as dcl-s bigNumber float(8);
