Hi! I'm trying to create a formula that would get the sum of a field within each page of the report.

Does anyone have an idea on this? Thanks!

    If you want something at the bottom of the page that says "Total sales for this page = £1385.55", then you'd create a formula in the group header that sets a variable to be 0. Then add to this variable for each record, and then display it in the page footer:

    In page header (suppress formula):

    whileprintingrecords;

    numbervar mytotal:=0;

    In details section (suppress formula):

    whileprintingrecords;

    numbervar mytotal:=mytotal+

    In page footer:

    whileprintingrecords;

    "Page total = "+totext(numbervar mytotal)
