Crystal Reports Calculate Percentage

I am trying to calculate the percentage of each security in a given portfolio. The calculation should be value of the security divided by portfolio total. For example, in account 1, first portfolio, the percentage for Select Financial Svcs should be 400/1500 = 0.267.

I tried using a following manual formula ({@Secur_Value} / {@Acct_Sum}), but it does not calculate the correct percentage.

The report is attached. Please help solve the problem.

What are the 2 formulas you are using?

I assume you are looking in the first line for 400/1500

In the screenshot, the far right column "Secur_Percent" is the Secur_Percent formula. That formula is ({@Secur_Value} / {@Acct_Sum}).

Yes, I am looking at the first line, Select Financial Svcs, with a value of  400. The current but incorrect Secur_Percent is 0.13

I tried to attach the report file again.
Change the Acct_Sum to

sum ({Acct_Value.SecValue},{tblPortfolios.Portfolio}) * 100

Open in new window

Change the formatting to be %

Thank you, mlmcc. It works now. The two formulas I'm using are:

Acct_Sum2 = sum ({Acct_Value.SecValue},{tblPortfolios.Portfolio})
Secur_Percent2 = {@Secur_Value} / {@Acct_Sum2}
