field from sub report to be used in main report

field from sub report to be used in main report

(OP)

is there any way to use a calculated field from a sub report in the main report. we have a calculated field in the sub report and it will be further used in the main report to get a final value.

Help will be appreciated.

RE: field from sub report to be used in main report

If you familiar with Whileprintingrecords function, you can use it and make shared variable to bring value from subreport to mainreport.

RE: field from sub report to be used in main report

As long as you assigned the calculated field to a shared variable (and use that same shared variable in a formula in the main report) and put the sub-report in a section prior to where you need the value in the main report, then it should work.
