Shared Variable in summary formula

Hi All,

I would appreciate any help I can get on this.

I have a subreport that retrieves a Foriegn Exchange rate for a specific date ( main report & sub-report are linked by date). I have no problem passing the value to the main report but when I use that value in a summarized formula field (@Princip Rem Term) I get the following error "A summary field has been specified on a non-recurring field Details: @Princip Rem Term"

Here are my formulas


@FX rate

Shared numbervar FX;


Main report:

@FX Rate

shared numbervar FX;





@Principal Rem Term


Is there a way to solve this problem? Can't I use the value I retrieved from the sub-report as a staic vlaue and summarize it??

Thanks for help...very much appreciated!!

What you'll have to do is manually summarize the field in the formula field @Principal Rem Term using a global variable, then create another formula field that will return the global variable's value and place it where you need it on the report.
