I like to sum the values from the "satfat", "monofat" and "polyfat" text field into "totalfat" textfield. The values in those 3 text field is retrieve from database. However, when it add up the 3 values, it will not be in decimal place instaead it will be in 30.10000000000000000000000002. How do i solve it and how to go about editing the code.

Math.floor rounds a number downwards to the nearest integer and returns that.

function updatesum() {

document.form1.totalfat.value = Math.floor((document.form1.satfat.value) + (document.form1.monofat.value ) + (document.form1.polyfat.value));

}

i have tried your method but is doesnt work which return me NaN. You stated that Math.floor will round downwards to the nearest integer but the values from the 3 field are retrieve from database how can it rounddown.

Perhaps the function doesn't know they are integers, use the following:

function updatesum() {

document.form1.totalfat.value = Math.floor(parseInt(document.form1.satfat.value) + parseInt(document.form1.monofat.value ) + parseInt(document.form1.polyfat.value));

}
