When I put in anything at all in CountRows(blah) to try to count the number of rows in a table I get this error...

The Value expression for the textbox ‘textbox29’ has a scope parameter that is not valid for an aggregate function.  The scope parameter must be set to a string constant that is equal to either the name of a containing group, the name of a containing data region, or the name of a data set.

Hi,

If you are using RS2005 you should be ok if you put the following as the expression in your textbox:

=CountRows("DataSetNameHere")

Cheers,

=CountRows("DataSetNameHere") placed anywhere on the detail line of a drill-down table gives the total number of rows in the DataSetNameHere.


=CountRows("DataSetNameHere", Recursive) placed anywhere on the grouping line gives the number of rows BELOW it--very interesting and useful.
