[SOLVED] ON ACROSS SUBTOTAL FIELD crashes the run

I have a very simple focexec:

TABLE FILE WITH_DOCS
SUM WITH_ICN/I9C AS 'With ICN'
    WITHOUT_ICN  AS 'Without ICN'
    TOTAL AS 'Total'
ACROSS DOCS AS ''
BY WEEK_ENDING AS 'Week'
WHERE DAY_OF_WEEK EQ '6';
ON DOCS SUMMARIZE WITH_ICN
END


The ON DOCS SUMMARIZE line (second to the end) crashes the run hard. "Could not get error message" hard. If I remove the field name it runs.

Does it for sub-total, subtotal as well. I'm just looking to total one field. Any recommendations on how to proceed?

I tried this on CAR file and couldn't reproduce. How many instances of DOCS are there? Maybe you have a very wide report. As a test can see what happens when you switch from ACROSS to BY? Does the problem go away?

  
TABLE FILE WITH_DOCS
SUM WITH_ICN/I9C AS 'With ICN'
    WITHOUT_ICN  AS 'Without ICN'
    TOTAL AS 'Total'
BY DOCS AS ''
BY WEEK_ENDING AS 'Week'
WHERE DAY_OF_WEEK EQ '6';
ON DOCS SUMMARIZE WITH_ICN
END

Just two. This is a really small report. I need the grand total and I can run with ON DOCS SUMMARIZE and get a total for all three of the fields. What I really want is

ON DOCS SUMMARIZE TOTAL

. . . but I didn't want to put the word TOTAL into the mix in the forums, as it's a word used in other places. I'm getting the same crash regardless of which column I try to specify.

Can I multi-verb this critter onto the end? I think it would need to have the same ACROSS field on it and that would stop getting me a single column.

Works with a BY instead of an ACROSS.

There is no ON for an ACROSS field...

Then perhaps it's an unofficial feature? Because "ON DOCS SUMMARIZE" in the source code above works perfectly. It's when I add a fieldname at the end that the walls come down.

OI Would be inclined to change the TOTAL fieldname as it's a reserved word.

However, the following works in 8.2.05. You will still get the columns that you do not include in the SUMMARIZE.

DEFINE FILE CAR
  TOTAL/D12 = RCOST + DCOST;
END
TABLE FILE CAR
  SUM RCOST
      DCOST
      TOTAL
ACROSS COUNTRY AS ''
BY MODEL
ON COUNTRY SUMMARIZE TOTAL
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
  grid=off, $
ENDSTYLE
END
-RUN
