I got a summary function that doesn't display zeroes, although I've made sure that in the Format Editor / Number/ Customize, that "suppress zero" is not checked, yet, I still get blank instead of zeroes, any thoughts?

Thx

Replace nulls with zero in your data source or with a formula


Formula:

IF ISNULL(field_you_are_summarizing) THEN
0
ELSE
field_you_are_summarizing

Replace the field on the report with the formula and summarize the formula
0

The formula I have in the Detail section is simple but I use it to check on the values in that field, with that in mind I need to build a formula that checks for nulls yet still compares the value I'm looking for.

IF ({table.field}) = "xx"
Then 1
Else 0
0

To get around this problem, I wrapped an "if isnull" statement around my formula (see above) and it worked fine

IF ISNULL (Sum ({@CountXX}, {Table.Field}))
Then 0
Else Sum ({@CountXX}, {Table.Field})
0
