 Hi, I have a requirement to get the difference of two nodes. Here is example 2010 Revenue: Ratable Revenue 492,997 Product Revenue 34,008,616 Services Revenue 4,449,767 Total Revenue 38,951,380 Cost of Sales: Ratable Cost 263,208 Product Cost 13,178,913 Service Cost 1,692,402 Restructuring Cost 0.00 Total Cost of Sales 15,134,523 Gross Margin 23,816,856 Gross Margin% 61.1% Here I should get the difference of TOTAL REVENUE and TOTAL COST OF SALES GROSS MARGIN/TOTAL REVENUE*100 (Round to first decimal) GROSS MARGIN=GROSS MARGIN/TOTAL REVENUE*100 (Round to first decimal) How can i achieve that in crystal reports. Any help please

 Easiest way is to use a Running total #revenue Use a sum of your numeric field and in evaluate use a formula TypeField = 'Revenue' // Type field is field used to grop on Revenue and costs Reset = Never Do same for Cost of Sales You can then use these RTs in formula to calculate Margin etc. Ian
