I have a cross tab with some summary formulas.   Is there a way  to pass these are global variables.

Usually I can see that summary in the formula but I cannot see this in the cross tab.  Am i missing something simple..

Thanks, Richard

I don't follow what the problem is.

A crosstab is a way of summarizing data in a matrix.
 
Are you trying to summarize a ormula that isn't available in the crosstab?

Yes.  For example the summary of the cross tab is £40,000.00 and I want to take this amount and put in another subreport so i can use it to convert into dollars..   I have five subreports all with cross tabs in different currencies....

Sorry, there is no way to get data from a crosstab and use it later.

You could build a manual crosstab following this example

You could also put a formula for just that total in the section of the cross tab and suppress it, then pass that value to the subreport.
