As part of a Data Job, we are including an expression node, trying to achieve a simple scoring output, the code we are using is as follows
Score = `Triggers` *100 / `Rows_Process`
We were expecting an .decimal as part of the output, however we are getting the output as 1 or 0, Trying to understand if we are doing anything wrong with our formulation.
appreciate any help

Do you need parenthesis in your calculation?
Score = (`Triggers` * 100) / `Rows_Process`
What are the variable types for Triggers and Rows_Process?
Coercion may be causing this.
If a part of an expression is not the type expected in that context, it is converted into the correct type. A type can be coerced into some other types.
