Hi Waz,

I dont use master file,

I used code:

 
SQL SQLMSS EX .dbo.GETVALUE
TABLE FILE SQLOUT
PRINT *
  ON TABLE HOLD AS XSQLOUT
END


TABLE FILE XSQLOUT
SUM TEST/P13.2
ON TABLE SET PAGE OFF
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM OFF
ON TABLE RECOMPUTE AS 'TOTAL'
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT AHTML
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
................

Add this after the HOLD AS XSQLOUT
-RUN
? HOLD XSQLOUT


This will show the format of the fields held.

James, I am trying to find out what the format of the fields are that you are retrieving.

The command I sent you will do that, can you post the results.

-SET &ECHO=ALL;
SQL SQLMSS EX .dbo.GETVALUE
TABLE FILE SQLOUT
PRINT *
  ON TABLE HOLD AS XSQLOUT
END
-RUN
? HOLD XSQLOUT
-EXIT

Thanks Waz,

you can try to below code:
  

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
DEALER_COST/P12.2
RETAIL_COST/P12.2
SALES/P12.2
LENGTH/P12.2
WHEELBASE/P12.2 AS 'TEST' 
BY TOTAL HIGHEST WHEELBASE/P12.2
BY CAR 
BY MODEL 
ON TABLE SET PAGE OFF
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM OFF
ON TABLE RECOMPUTE AS 'TOTAL'
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT AHTML
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
END
-EXIT


you can see the 'TEST' column is not format P12.2 , look like P12.1

by the way , I code in Webfocus7610 64bit and windows2008 64bit.

Thanks,
James

James,

I think you should open a case for this with IB tech support. The code on the car file reacts the same in webfocus 7701 on a 32 bit platform.
The code is ok however when run in normal html in stead of active html.
And the code is also ok if you specify BY TOTAL HIGHEST WHEELBASE NOPRINT in stead of BY TOTAL HIGHEST WHEELBASE/P12.2
It seems that things get screwed up if you use the wheelbase field (or any other D or P field) in a BY statement.

What I think is happening is the BY TOTAL is overriding the reformatting of the field, and the SUMmed field takes the same format.

By removing the format from the BY field, the TEST files is OK.

I guess theFormat override does not happen with BY TOTAL.

As GamP suggests, put a case in with IBI.

Another idea, off the top of my head, it that something may be getting confused in the internal matrix. When you rdefine formats on the fly like this, you actually end up with two fields with the same column name in the internal matrix. Which one gets used with the BY TOTAL, I don't know, but this seems a little indicative of the problem you're seeing. You might try SET HOLDLIST=PRINTONLY, HOLD, and then TABLE the HOLD file. This woul at least eliminate that possibility. If that solves the problem, just DEFINE/COMPUTE fields with different names instead of redefining the format on the fly.

Darin
