Summarize a formula which has Next/Previous

I need to summarize a formula, that is evaluated after another formula that uses NEXT and PREVIOUS.

The formula i want to summarize does not appear in the lst when i click "insert summary"

I am able to use variables for Previous, but really need Next, and i don't think there is a workaround for this.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    You can try using a global variable to build a running agregation. The variable should be updated in the code that uses the Next/Previous operator according to the desired aggregation calculation.

      The solution i ended up going with, was to use the formula asis, with the next/previous functions.

      This creates the data i need, but cannot summarize any formlas.

      So i then just export the report as a .csv, linked to a ms access db, and then use the new source, and pull in all the same

      fielld, and i am then able to summarize the data field was was created with next/previous funtions. It works fine, and i just have

      the extra step of exporting the original data.

      Jason is correct, and i can use global varibles for the "previous" values, but not for "next".
