[SOLVED] Issues with placement of Report's Total
All,
I am having issues with placing a total at the end of a PDF report. If I don’t add page numbers, the total appear at the end of the report which is what I want. However, if I add page numbers, the total appear on a new page by itself. If I change the report’s format to HTML, then page number appears before the total even when I set the footing to appear at the bottom of the page. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Here is the code:

 
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT 
     CAR.COMP.CAR
     CAR.ORIGIN.CNTR
BY  LOWEST CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY
     
ON CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY SUBTOTAL AS '*TOTAL'
FOOTING BOTTOM
"<TABPAGENO"
ON TABLE SUBFOOT
"Total Number of Cars <ST.CNTR"
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD 
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
-*ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
     INCLUDE = endeflt,
$
TYPE=REPORT,
     GRAPHCOLOR='GREEN',
$
TYPE=REPORT,
     OBJECT=MENU,
     COLOR='WHITE',
     HOVER-COLOR=RGB(66 70 73),
     BACKCOLOR=RGB(102 102 102),
     HOVER-BACKCOLOR=RGB(218 225 232),
     BORDER-COLOR='WHITE',
$
TYPE=REPORT,
     OBJECT=STATUS-AREA,
     COLOR='WHITE',
     BACKCOLOR=RGB(102 102 102),
$
TYPE=REPORT,
     OBJECT=CURRENT-ROW,
     HOVER-BACKCOLOR=RGB(218 225 232),
     BACKCOLOR=RGB(200 200 200),
$
TYPE=REPORT,
     OBJECT=CALC-AREA,
     COLOR='WHITE',
     BACKCOLOR=RGB(102 102 102),
$
ENDSTYLE
END


Thanks,

Seyed

This behaviour is correct and described in the documentation. This is because you are using ON TABLE SUBFOOT.

Create a major single value sort and use that for the SUBFOOT:
DEFINE FILE CAR
DUMMY/A1 = ' ';
END

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT 
     CAR.COMP.CAR
     CAR.ORIGIN.CNTR
BY DUMMY NOPRINT
BY  LOWEST CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY
     
ON CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY SUBTOTAL AS '*TOTAL'
FOOTING BOTTOM
"<TABPAGENO"
ON DUMMY SUBFOOT
"Total Number of Cars <ST.CNTR"
.
.

Hi Alan,
Thank you very much for your input. Your solution resolves issues with my first report. However, I will be creating other reports for our customers that will have to be bursted by name which is a primary sort. I am guessing, that having a dummy primary sort will create problems in RC and bursting will fail. I just read the documentation for ReportCaster, and second by field only applies to Graphs.

Thanks again,

Seyed

You could try calculating the total and append it to the data using MORE or FILEDEF (APPEND.

Well, not necessarily. If you are bursting a report by "name" then I assume you want to display your TOTAL corresponding to the "name" being processed, don't you? In that case, no dummy field is needed. Having an ON NAME SUBFOOT should take care of it for you.
