For loop in Crystal reports - printing issue

Hi,

I have a formula field, in basic syntax, that uses a for loop.  The contents of the formula section should be printed the number of times as (i), the number of times it loops.

However, it loops 5, and only prints the last one?

Here is my code:
Dim i As number
Dim dval As Double
Dim deprec As Double
Dim d_cost as double
dim i_term as number

d_cost = {ITEMUNITOFMEASURE.UnitCost}
i_term = {ITEMUNITOFMEASURE.Lifespan}

dval = d_cost
For i = 1 To i_term
            deprec = d_cost / CDbl(i_term)
            dval = dval - deprec
Next i        
formula = "End of Year" &  i  & " Depreciation:" & deprec & "Current Value:" & dval


Here is the output:
End of Year5.00 Depreciation: 2,189.72 Current Value:240.88

The output that I want is:
End of Year1.00 Depreciation: 2,189.72 Current Value:8,999.76
End of Year2.00 Depreciation: 2,189.72 Current Value:6,810.04
End of Year3.00 Depreciation: 2,189.72 Current Value:4,620.32
End of Year4.00 Depreciation: 2,189.72 Current Value:2,430.60
End of Year5.00 Depreciation: 2,189.72 Current Value:240.88

Thank you.

your 'formula= ' command is outside of the loop so you will only get the last value.
you need a
Dim Result as string

plus...


For i = 1 To i_term
            deprec = d_cost / CDbl(i_term)
            dval = dval - deprec
              result = result & "End of Year" &  i  & " Depreciation:" & deprec & "Current Value:" & dval & chr(13)
Next i        
formula = result
