I have read several posts concerning decimals and float values. The only problem is the fact that when I try to decrease the decimal amount with str$(damage, 2) it comes up saying "Parameter for STR$ do not match 'Value' on line 67"

I don't understand how it works for everyone else but its fails for me.

Thank you

This usually means that the wrong type of data is being passed in. What data type is "damage"?

I think the STR$ decimal feature is only good for a visual string output.
You'll want to decrease your actual damage variable instead, as in DEC damage,n

Also, make sure you do damage as FLOAT or just damage# so it's an actual float and not an integer.

right, 'damage' is an integer by default, unless you defined a type like 'damage as float' when creating it). integers cannot have decimal places and this is probably causing the error.

str$(damage) should work fine and str$(damage#, 2) should also work fine.
