As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

I would like to use the column totals in an ACROSS report to compute a new value, and then to display this value beneath the Column Total at the end of the report.

But, I need the individual across values, e.g. C1, C2, etc not just the overall total.

define file ...
tvalue/... = value ;
end

table file ...
write tvalue noprint
across colkey
write value
across colkey
by rowkey
...
end

should give you n col total variables and n col detail variables which you can reference in COMPUTE or RECAP.

What type of compute is on your mind? Is it a function of the number of columns only or also of the values of the ACROSS sort field?

For example:
I sum SALES BY COUNTRY ACROSS SEATS.
The new value is the sum of the column-total for all seats with an even number.
  
-* File gcohen01.fex
SET HOLDLIST=PRINTONLY
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM SALES BY SEATS 
ON TABLE SAVE
END
-RUN
-SET &S=&LINES;
-SET &T=0;
-SET &SP='<+0> ';
-REPEAT #COMP FOR &I FROM 1 TO &S;
-READ SAVE &SEAT.A3. &SALES.A6.
-TYPE &SEAT &SALES
-SET &T = &T + IMOD(&SEAT + 1, 2, 'I2') * &SALES;
-SET &SP=&SP | '<+0> ';
-#COMP
-RUN
-SET &SP=&SP | '<FST.T'
DEFINE FILE CAR
T/I6=&T;
END
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM 
     SALES
ACROSS  SEATS
BY  LOWEST COUNTRY
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD 
ON TABLE ROW-TOTAL AS 'TOTAL'
ON TABLE COLUMN-TOTAL AS 'TOTAL'
ON TABLE SUBFOOT
"&SP"
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
     INCLUDE = endeflt,
$
TYPE=ACROSSVALUE,
     ACROSS=1,
     BACKCOLOR='WHITE',
$
TYPE=ACROSSVALUE,
     COLUMN=ROWTOTAL(1),
     BACKCOLOR='WHITE',
$
TYPE=TABFOOTING, HEADALIGN=BODY, 
$
ENDSTYLE
END

Thanks for everyone's input.

GCohen, we have a McGyver Dynamic Subtotals/SubFoots technique under the tips and techniques section, which may be of help: http://www.informationbuilders...opers/McGyverDynamic

Happy holidays to everyone!! Smiler

Cheers,

Kerry
