Hi there

Giving an expression:

expr1:= a1*b2;

why we can not write

expr2 := sum(expr1.value); // as total
expr3 := sum(expr2.value); // as grand total

best regards.

You can write

expr = sum(a1 * b2)

QR3 does not allow expressions because they did not implement an solver for the order in which expressions are solved. (Excel and MathLab has such a solver). Such a solver is quit difficult to make and allows for circular references like

expr1 = sum(expr2)
expr2 = sum(expr1)

To solve the order in which expressions are solved requires complex analysis of all interdependancies of the expressions.

Aggregate expressions are treated differently in QR3. I think it is even so that an aggregate expression must start with the aggregate function and can nu have other parts. For example:

expr1 = sum(a3) * 5
expr2 = 5 * sum(a3)

Are not allowed to my knowledge.

In a QuickReport to have total and grandtotal you have to use the "reset after print" property of the aggregate expression.

eGroupTotal = sum(...) "ResetAfterPrint = True" printed on GroupFooter
eGrandTotal = sum(...) "ResetAfterPrint = False" printed on Summary
