Creating % ON SUBTOTAL

Creating % ON SUBTOTAL

Creating % ON SUBTOTAL


I become mutch better with webfocus. And right now i have an report wich have have 2 hold files to combine 2 statements in one report.
To give them an total i have used the subtotal option.

However when i tried to create an compute to calculate the %
than the result is not goed (compute percent.f7%=(percent/tot.percent)*100;)

This is necessesary so that in the above part of the report i get the numbers and in the beneath part of the report i get the %.

I have tried to calculate with TOT. but in the hold file or in the last report this gives not the right result.

The numbers are correct so it is the compute wich is the problem



RE: Creating % ON SUBTOTAL

Can you supply a sample of your code? If you want a COMPUTE calculation done at a sort field break, you might try SUMMARIZE or RECOMPUTE, rather than SUBTOTAL.
