In the WOLOCTotal formula in the subreport, you have

WOLocValue:= WOLocValue:= Sum ({PURREQ.TOTAL}, {@EQUIPLOCATION})

 That should be

WOLocValue := WOLocValue + Sum ({PURREQ.TOTAL}, {@EQUIPLOCATION})


 Replace the second := with +

 You can chain variable assignments: (var1 := var2 := 3) sets both var1 and var2 to 3.  In your case, you had the same variable name twice.  While that doesn't accomplish anything (it just sets the variable to the same value twice), it's legal syntax as far as CR is concerned.  That's why you didn't get an error.

I see a couple of issues.

 Since the total is in GF1, it's presumably meant to be the total for group 1, but you set the variable (WOLocValue) to a new value in the "WO Costs" subreport in GH2b.  You set it to a new value, instead of accumulating the values from each subreport, so in GF1, WOLocValue will have the total from the subreport in the last GH2 in that group.

 Presumably @WOLOCTotal in the subreport should be changed from

shared numbervar WOLocValue;

if isnull (Sum ({PURREQ.TOTAL}, {@EQUIPLOCATION})) then WOLocValue:=0.00 else
WOLocValue:= Sum ({PURREQ.TOTAL}, {@EQUIPLOCATION})

   to

shared numbervar WOLocValue;

if not isnull (Sum ({PURREQ.TOTAL}, {@EQUIPLOCATION})) then
WOLocValue:= WOLocValue + Sum ({PURREQ.TOTAL}, {@EQUIPLOCATION})


 You also presumably need to reset WOLocValue to 0 for each new group 1.  The simplest thing would be to put a copy of @DecVal3 in GH1 (so it will be in the Report Header _and_ in GH1).


 You don't have those issues with the "Equipment Purchases" subreport, because you use that variable in GF2, instead of GF1.

Hi James

Thanks for the information
I have copied the decval3 in the GH1 of the main report and changed the @WOlocValue in the sub report
It gives a figure but it is not correct
Have attached another screen shot of the report together with an updated rpt file

Appreciate your support
