I have a report using ACROSS commands and I would like to RECAP some values based on the ACROSS values and show them in a subfoot. I get an errorFrownerFOC268) THE FIELD NAME IS NOT REFERENCED IN THE REQUEST STATEMENT: TIMESORT

Ex:
TABLE FILE x
SUM
SALES AS 'Sales'
CREDIT NOPRINT
BY
DIVISION AS ' '
ACROSS
TIMESORT AS ' '
ON DIVISION
RECAP CRD1/D18 = IF TIMESORT EQ 'D' THEN CREDIT ELSE 0;
CRD2/D18 = IF TIMESORT EQ 'M' THEN CREDIT ELSE 0;
CRD3/D18 = IF TIMESORT EQ 'Q' THEN CREDIT ELSE 0;

ON DIVISION SUBFOOT
"Credits:
Is there a reason why it's not working?

Thanks.

If I do my RECAP based on a COMPUTED value, I only get something for the first ACROSS value!?

EX:
TABLE FILE x
SUM
SALES AS 'Sales'
COMPUTE CREDIT/D18 = IF TIMESORT NE 'Z' THEN CREDIT_VALUE ELSE 0; NOPRINT
BY
DIVISION AS ' '
ACROSS
TIMESORT AS ' '
ON DIVISION
RECAP CRD1/D18 = IF TIMESORT EQ 'D' THEN CREDIT ELSE 0;
CRD2/D18 = IF TIMESORT EQ 'M' THEN CREDIT ELSE 0;
CRD3/D18 = IF TIMESORT EQ 'Q' THEN CREDIT ELSE 0;

ON DIVISION SUBFOOT
"Credits: <CRD1 <CRD2 <CRD3"

CRD1 has a value, others are 0 but souldn't.

HELP!

Try doing a COMPUTE fldnm NOPRINT instead of a RECAP. Then do a subfoot to display the calculation.

Use the search utility to search for 'COMPUTE AFTER' to find other topics that show this technique.

Fro example:

I tried the COMPUTE with column notation after the ACROSS commands and it's giving me strange results... My last ACROSS value column is empty and the results of my COMPUTED fields in the Subfoot are wrong.

I don't know what to do. I've searched and tried a lot.

Why is it so difficult to have a subfoot showing totals of an hidden column (noprint) for each ACROSS value?? Confused

Wow, Ricardo, you've dug up an old one- they left these guys in the lurch 10 years ago. Smiler

This is what I think they wanted:

  
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM DCOST SALES
ACROSS SEATS
BY COUNTRY SUB-TOTAL
IF SEATS FROM 2 TO 5
END
-RUN

             SEATS 
               2                   4                   5

Now, we'll just do recaps and subfoots for the SALES field:

  
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM DCOST IN 20 SALES NOPRINT
BY COUNTRY BY CAR
ACROSS SEATS IN 20
IF SEATS FROM 2 TO 5
ON COUNTRY SUB-TOTAL
ON COUNTRY RECAP
  COL1/D7 = C2 ;
  COL2/D7 = C4 ;
  COL3/D7 = C6 ;
ON COUNTRY SUBFOOT
"<20 -----------------------------------"
" *MYSALES <20<COL1> <COL2> <COL3> "
" "
END
-RUN
                    SEATS 
                      2          4          5

Note that the columns are in alignment because I changed the format of SALES to the same format as DCOST, which is D7.
