How do I add a Row Count in the Page Footer Section that counts the number of rows on the current page?  I can create a total report count in the Report Footer, but what I need is to have it summarized per page.  I am using Crystal XI (and also 2008) stand alone.

Use a variable. Reset it to 0 in a Page Header formula. Increment it in a detail section or group section formula, and display it in a page footer formula.

Newbie question:  I have created formulas, but where do I put the formula in the page header?  Do I use Section Expert and click one of the X-2 buttons?

You simply place the formula in the Group Header.  Anywhere in that section.  You can suppress the formula, so it's not visible.

I am one step closer but the math doesn't seem to work.  I get 0 for the header, 1 for each of the rows in the detail section (instead of incrementing), and I get a page footer total of 1 (instead of actual number of rows on the page).  Any thoughts?

Formula for the Page Header
Global RowCount as Number
RowCount = 0
formula = RowCount

Open in new window


Formula for the details
Global RowCount as number
RowCount = Rowcount + 1
formula = RowCount

Open in new window


Formula for the Page Footer
Global RowCount as number
formula = RowCount

Open in new window

The assignment operator is ':='
You are using '=' instead.

Sorry, I forget to specify that I am using Basic Syntax instead of Crystal Syntax.  I guess I could try with Crystal Syntax, but I think it is something else.  All three formulas verify OK when I using the formula verification button.

Try adding WhilePrintingRecords as the first line in each formula.  Since you're not referencing any db fields in the detail formula, CR defaults to evaluating it once, before the records are read (even if you put the formula in the detail section).  Adding WhilePrintingRecords to the detail formula (and putting the formula in the detail section) forces CR to (re)evaluate the formula when it "prints" each record.

 And if you add WhilePrintingRecords to the detail formula, you need to add it to the others too, so that all of the formulas are evaluated during the same pass through the report.  Otherwise, your count isn't reset in the page header, or you don't get the total in the page footer, because those formulas are evaluated before the "printing" pass.

 FWIW, what got me on to this was a note in the CR Help about using WhileReadingRecords (as opposed to WhilePrintingRecords) to force a formula to be evaluated as the records are read, but WhileReadingRecords didn't work for me (the count still wasn't incremented).  I don't know why.  So I tried WhilePrintingRecords instead and that seemed to work fine.  <shrug>

Yes, as James suggested, use WhilePrintingRecords.

Using a mulit-section global variable and WhilePrintingRecords solved this problem.  Thanks!
