Passing a variable from a subreport

Passing a variable from a subreport

Passing a variable from a subreport


Using CR7

Not every group on my main report has data from the sub report.

I'm passing a number from the subreport to the main report and subtracting it from the main report's group total.

On groups where there is no data from the subreport, the variable is using the number from the last group that had data and subtracting that.

Is there a way to reset the variable to zero when the subreport is empty?  Or is there a way that I can get the main report to ignore the variable on groups where the subreport is empty?

thank you

RE: Passing a variable from a subreport

What section is the subreport in?
You can split that section into two pieces and reset the variable in the section just before the subreport is initiated:

Shared NumberVar xxx := 0
