Formula for suppressing rows

Formula for suppressing rows

Formula for suppressing rows

If two rows of data has duplicate data with the exception of the {extended amount} but the two rows with extended amount sum to zero.
How do I suppress both rows? I do not want any grouping.
row 1 field {customer no}, field [
{item code}, field [invoice no},field {extended amount} = +5.00
row 2 field {customer no}, field [invoice no},field {item code},field {extended amount} = -5.00

Thanks for your assistance.

RE: Formula for suppressing rows

The real question here is why is the row duplicated? The answer is likely due to the way you have your tables linked. Please provide a list of tables and how they are linked.

RE: Formula for suppressing rows

Lines are duplicated where invoice numbers may be the same due to fact that I am retrieving every line item on each invoice. There is no problem with my linking.

RE: Formula for suppressing rows

First create a formula {@all} that includes all fields except the ext amt field, like this (use ampersands so you don't have to convert fields to the same datatype):


Then use a suppression formula like this on the detail section:

not onlastrecord and
{@all}=next({@all} and
Not onfirstrecord and
{@all}=previous({@all}) and

You should also format the detail section to "suppress blank section."
