I have a subreport in whcih I am passing a value back to the main report to be used with calculations. The formulas I have to pass them back work fine. However, the returned info seems to befor the next record down

What I see:

Main - subreport
1               0
2               1
3               2
4               3

What I was hoping to see:

Main - subreport
1              1
2              2
3              3
4              4

I am pretty sure I am missing a NULL formula. I have the reset formula as shown:

whileprintingrecords;
shared numbervar commitments :=0;

Thank you for your help!

THe subreport must be in a section before the section you need them in the man report.
Subreports are the last thing evaluated in a section (or at least that is my experience) so if the main report formula is in the same section it evaluates before the subreport runs so it uses the value from the prvious record.

Right click the section with the subreport in the left margin
Click SECTION EXPERT
Click the button for INSERT SECTION BELOW
Drag the new section so it is ABOVE the original section
CLick OK
Drag the subreport to the new blank section
