OK Now I return the scrap amount in my details section. I need to return that total amount of scrap time in my group footer equation.

How can I just pass the value of my details running total to my footer?

Never mind I figured out my issue


Shared NumberVar scrapped_Time;
numberVar dur := scrapped_Time;
numberVar hrs;
numberVar min;
numberVar sec;
stringVar hhmmss;

hrs := Truncate(Truncate(dur/60)/60);
min := Remainder(Truncate(dur/60),60);
sec := Remainder(dur,60);

hhmmss := totext(hrs,"0") + ":" + totext(min,"00") + ":"+ totext(sec,"00");

As you figured out, you just needed to use the scrapped_Time variable.  FWIW, you don't need the dur or hhmmss variables in that formula.  You could just use scrapped_time instead of dur, and you don't need to put the final string in a variable unless you want to use that string somewhere else.  So, you could have:

Shared NumberVar scrapped_Time;
numberVar hrs;
numberVar min;
numberVar sec;

hrs := Truncate(Truncate(scrapped_Time/60)/60);
min := Remainder(Truncate(scrapped_Time/60),60);
sec := Remainder(scrapped_Time,60);

totext(hrs,"0") + ":" + totext(min,"00") + ":"+ totext(sec,"00")


 And if you really want to cut down the formula as much as possible, you could eliminate all of the variables except for scrapped_Time:

Shared NumberVar scrapped_Time;

totext (Truncate (Truncate (scrapped_Time / 60) / 60), "0") + ":" +
 totext (Remainder (Truncate (scrapped_Time / 60), 60), "00") + ":"+
 totext (Remainder (scrapped_Time, 60), "00")


 As far as performance goes, I don't think it makes any difference which formula you use.  It's all about which version you (or anyone else that might look at this report) find easiest to read.  I was just presenting some alternatives, FYI.
