NumberVar Question


I have a formula and it work okay, but if the numbervar is blank I want to display a 0 and not a blank.

Here is the formula:

Shared NumberVar myTotal1:=Sum({SumFromStockData.Quanity});

I am using Shared because I have a sub report that I will be using this.

So I tried this:

if IsNull(myTotal1) then




The error comes up when I check it:

it highlights the first line for myTotal1 saying a Field is required here.

It might be a simply answer but I can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

    Hi Gerald,

    In the formula editor, look for an option on the top that says 'Exceptions for Nulls'; change that to 'Default Values for Nulls'.

    Next, simply the change the formula to:

    Shared NumberVar myTotal1:=Sum({SumFromStockData.Quanity});
