I have a very urgent request. I have a shared variable that I'm pulling from a subreport into the main report. The problem is the variable never resets at the group level. It grabs the total for the first product but then just repeats that same total for all of my products.. HELP!

Subreport formula is

WhilePrintingRecords;
Shared NumberVar MyPPORequirements;
if(isnull({#RSum_Quantity_Fixed})) or ({#RSum_Quantity_Fixed} = 0) then MyPPORequirements := 0 else
MyPPORequirements := -{#RSum_Quantity_Fixed}

Main formula is
WhilePrintingRecords;
shared numbervar MyPPORequirements;
MyPPORequirements

i think you need to reset the variable by assigning 0 to it.  just create a new formula for this, and place it on the report at the point where the variable should reset.  make sure you have "whileprintingrecords" in that formula so it resets at the right time.
