Scan using Number of shares in the float

What is the syntax or parameter to use the number of shares in the float for scanning purposes?

I want to scan for stocks that the ratio of the daily average volume divided by the number of shares in the float is higher than 2

    In the scan engine you only have Outstanding Shares. It's under Ticker Properties and defaults into the workbench like this

    and [outstanding shares > 100]

    Float isn't currently showing as a datapoint available. You can go to or to see the float data. Unless you are a paying member at these sites, I don't see that you are able to create a custom line of code to achieve your desired query. In other words, I don't know if you can do what you are asking at those sites either.

    I do know that this subject comes up on ThinkorSwim, and you can't get the float data on their either.
