I have this formula which is in the detail. Values of either 0 or 1 displays correctly.
However, when I right-click on it, it does not show "insert summary" option.
Does this have to do with "evaluateafter" or using global variable?
How can a do a summary (count of)?

problem formula:
global stringvar YM1;
global stringvar LYM;
if YM1 = LYM then 1 else 0;

A simple formula, such as, has no problem showing the "insert summary" option.
if {listing.Status} = 'p' then 1 else 0

    Accepted Solution

    Summaries are actually done before printing the records.

    This will explain the multipass method used by CR

    When is {@G} evaluated?  If it is also whileprintingrecords then there is probablyno ay to use the summary.

    You could use a running total instead of the summary.
