hello all,

i have this 3 fields, and from this 3 fields i want to calculate a running cumulative balance.

this are the ff. fields

1. Opening Balance
2. Debit
3. Credit

the formula is Opening balance + debit - Credit. this is my actual CR formula

({OpeningBalance.Open Balance} + {BP_AccountBalance;1.Credit}) - {BP_AccountBalance;1.Debit}

but using the above formula does not get the desired result.

please help.

thanks.

shared numbervar dBalance;
dBalance := dBalance + {BP_AccountBalance;1.Credit} - {BP_AccountBalance;1.Debit} ;
dBalance  //display the running balance;
 
this would be in the detail section.
 
in the group header
shared numbervar dBalance := {OpeningBalance.Open Balance};
"" // hide the output
 
group footer
shared numbervar dBalance

hi,

since i have a problem with duplicated rows, please see my screen shot above. i tried grouping it by Ref(field) and now place the detail formula in the Group Footer, the Duplicated rows is not a problem anymore, but when i check the 2nd page of the report, instead of carrying the running total from 1st page to the second page, it does not. but it get the Value of OpeningBalance like what it did in the 1st page.

ive been working this in the last few days, and im stack with this.
please help...

do you have a reset formula in the group header or the pager header.  How does it get the opening balance, does getting the balance override / reset the variable.
 
I haven't looked at the picture, but if the shared/global variable is working on the page, the page change must be affecting it in some way.

hello lockwelle,

I try to apply your formula into my CR report,

I face this problems:
"A running total cannot refer to a print time formula detail @BFAmount"

I set the formula as per your guide but I do add the running total tool too.

Should I take out the running total too?

Thanks for you help

alas, I don't use Running Totals, so I do not know.  DBlank is the master of the running total.
 
I am sure that both methods can be used at the same time, as they do basically the same thing, but as to how they play together, I don't know.

After take out the running tool, my report is running correctly.

But another question raise now.
I have a b/f value, but not transaction for that accounts/product. Then the whole detail is not shown up.

How to solve this problems? Any suggestion on this.

Other all work perfectly.
