grand total from hold files
Gold member
We have two hold files (which are achieved from the match) for two types of customers in the report.
We used html form to display the output. The customers are displayed one below the other in the output. Individual hold files have column totals displayed. We would like to display the grand totals from totals in hold files.

We have worked with "MORE" command, but did not end up with required output

Output is presently in the format
One type of Customer from hold file NEWCUST
column1 column2 column3 column4
totalc2 totalc3 totalc4

Other type of Customer from hold file OLDCUST
column1 column2 column3 column4
totc2 totc3 totc4
We need to implement the
Grand total which is the sum of values for both types of customers like

totalc2+totc2 totalc3+totc3 totalc4+totc4

Note: Column names in both types of customers are same

Hi Prasanna,

Has this issue been resolved?

One of our internal consultants reviewed this topic and suggested that a case may be of better help. Or, please supply the hold files for us to take a look at.

To open a case, you may either call at 1-800-736-6130, or access the online system InfoResponse at Here is a list of information to be ready when you call:

Hope this helps. Smiler
