%= calculates the value of the left parameter modulo to the value of the right parameter and sets the left parameter to the resulting value. The left parameter should be a variable that contains an integer value. The right parameter must also be an integer.

This symbol does not operate on string values.


[(Variable: 'Left_Parameter') %= Right_Parameter]

(Variable: 'Left_Parameter') %= Right_Parameter;

$Left_Parameter %= Right_Parameter;


Required Parameters
Left_Parameter The variable in which the value should be stored.
Right_Parameter The modulus of the calculation.


To calculate the modulo of a variable:

Use the modulo assignment symbol %=. The modulo of the variable will be calculated and stored in the variable. No result will be returned to the format file. The following example calculates the value of a variable Result modulo 5. The value of the variable is then displayed.

  Variable: 'Result'=10;
  $Result %= 5;
  Output: $Result;
