Posted on 2013-02-07

I would like to suppress my group footer if my running total "date" is less than 6 months.   I have the following formula but it does not work..

I have this in the section expert section.   The supression is not ticked.

Can I supress the whole line in the details section?

{#RTotal0} = CurrentDate - 180

I'm struggling with the concept of a 'running total Date' - can you explain this please.

Sorry that is not clear.   I have running total on the date which tells me the last date worked on a PO.  (Maximum Date in Running Total)  This works well but I need to supress all dates which are within the last six months.

Using that "=" sign would only suppress maximum dates that are exactly 180 days ago.

Maybe try:  {#RTotal0} <= CurrentDate - 180 to hide things older than 180 days.

or  {#RTotal0} >= CurrentDate - 180 to hide things newer than 180 days.

Do you need the data in the report or arer you suppressing all information on a PO if it was worked on in the last 180 days?

If you want to see data that is over 180 days old regardless of work after that just use a record selection formula to select data that is older than 180 days.

This doesn't answer your question (hopefully the others have taken care of that), but, FWIW, if you want the last date for a PO, and the report is grouped by the PO, you could use Maximum instead of a running total.  Something like Maximum ({date field}, {PO group field}).
