Using Shared Var value in Chart

Using Shared Var value in Chart

Hi there,
I am sure this has been posted before but I am losing the will to live with it.

I created this in the sub report

shared CURRENCYVAR fiu;

In the main report I created this

shared currencyvar fiu;

So far so good

The value was then used against another formula and I can see that value when I try to create a report.

However I now want to just use the value FIU in the report and it will not show when trying to create a chart.

Any ideas anyone!!!

RE: Using Shared Var value in Chart

As soon as you put a shared variable in a formula it will not appear in the Chart Expert on the Data tab in the available fields section.
Consequently it appears that you are not be able to base a chart on formulas that use the shared variable.

CODE -->

Shared NumberVar x //This will cause this formula not to be available in the chart expert 

Possible Workaround:
Create a formula that does not have a shared variable.
For example

CODE -->

Base your chart on that formula
Now copy the contents of the real formula over this formula


RE: Using Shared Var value in Chart

Many thanks for the response. I resolved by doing a new sql view instead.
