I want to show a count of each record in a report but I want to reset it to 1 for each group.  Currently it just continues to count because I am using the "Record Count" field.  Any ideas?

Note that I am using CR 8

OKay, lets assumme you have report like so:
GH - Group Header Section
D - Detal Section
GF - Group Footer Section
1. Create a formula like below and place it in the Detail Section -
SharedNumberVar ct;
Ct := Ct + 1;
2. Create another formula and palce this in the Group Footer;
Shared Numbervar ct;
3. And to reset create another formula to place it in the Group header:
Shared Numbervar Ct := 0;
And this should do it. Hope this helps.
