I need to be able to round (actually ceil) a division into the expression of the numerator of an Indicator, it seems impossible to do in DHIS2?

The expression is simply : Ceil(DE1/DE2) but d2:ceil() available in program indicator does not work (expression is dubbed as invalid), without any rounding function or a integer division is not possible to have a workaround. And if I would want to “bypass” this I am stuck by not being able to implement an indicator using the results of two others indicator.

d2:ceil works in program rules so there’s a way to make a program rule that would convert the value and assign it to a variable and then using it in the program indicator.

Alternatively, you could use a math calculation which will return the ceil: (#{DE1} + #{DE2} - 1)/(#{DE2})

I already tried the approximation and it does not work due to the fact than the division is not an integer division in DHIS2 :
if DE1 = 756 and DE2 = 56 then CEIL(756/56) = 14 and (756 + 56 - 1) / 56 = 14.482142857142858 is the division operator is not an integer division.

Do I have a misunderstanding about the nature of the division operator available in Indicator expression engine ?

Thanks for the idea but unfortunately, I am working with Datasets and Indicator not Program and Program Indicator (my life would have been easier :D). I don’t think there any way to round/floor/ceil a number into the expression engine of an Indicator due to the lack of functions and/or lack of integer division.

Apologies, I thought you’re using program indicator since it was mentioned in your first post. I’d need to look around and see if there’s a way in the aggregate.

It might be possible to create a feature request but maybe there’s a way of doing it, so let’s check first.
