Report has two groups:

group 1: Sales Rep
Group 2: Product

in group 2 footer I have a formula called "incentive" that uses two running totals to return a value.

Footer Group 1: I want to return the sum of "incentive" in group 1 footer but not sure how to do that.

I tried using globalvar but can not get to work correctly (see below)


Global Numbervar totalincentive;

Local numbervar numout3 :=0;

numout3:={@Total Incentive};

totalincentive:= totalincentive + numout3;


DATA EXAMPLE:

PRODUCT 12345  TOTAL INCENTIVE: $2
PRODUCT 123456 Total Incentive: $3

Total for sales rep X  $5

numout3

Just use another runnning total for incentive and reset on group 1 data not group 2 data.

I can not do that because the calculation for incentive is specific to that line.

Try adding WhilePrintingRecords; as the first line of the formula.

FWIW, I agree with mlmcc's suggestion to add WhilePrintingRecords.

 The formula that you posted doesn't need the numout3 variable.  You can use it if you like, but it's not necessary.  You could just have:

WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar totalincentive;
totalincentive:= totalincentive + {@Total Incentive}


 You might also want to create a formula that just declares the variable, and put that formula in the Report Header:

WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar totalincentive;
""

 The "" is just so that the formula doesn't produce any visible output on the report.  You could also just suppress the formula, or the section.


 And if you're looking for a total for group 1, then you're presumably going to want to reset that total for each new group 1.  You could put a formula like the following in GH1:

WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar totalincentive;
totalincentive := 0;
""
