WHen do you want it to reset?

When you say reset do you mean initialize to 1000?
If so, you can't use a running total.

Use 2 formulas

IN group header
WhilePrintingRecords;
GLobal NumberVar myTotal;
myTotal := {SOmeField};

Open in new window


IN the detail section to calculate and display
WhilePrintingRecords;
GLobal NumberVar myTotal;
myTotal := myTotal + {DetailField}

Open in new window

I assume that the figure in GH1 is from a field?

 You could use a running total, but you would need a formula too.

 Create a running total on the Detail column, set to reset for each group 1 (or wherever).

 Create a formula like the following and put it next to the Detail field:

{GH1 field} + {#running total}

Is the value in the group header in every record, or just the first one for each group?

 If it's in every record, then, like I said, you could have a running total on your "Detail" field and have it reset when the group changes, and then create a formula that subtracts the running total from the field that you're displaying in the group header.

 mlmcc's suggestion will work too, of course.  This is just another way you could handle it.
