I have two rows of data for an ID:
ID:     Date:         Code:     Hours:  
123     01/01/2014    ABC       4
123     01/02/2014    ABC       5


I would like to add a fifth field that is the running total for the code "as of each row".

So the first row would have "Running Total" field value equal to 4, but the second row would have a "Running Total" field value equal to 9.

Is this possible?

Maybe something like this:
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
SALES
COMPUTE SALES_RT/D6 = SALES_RT + SALES;
RETAIL_COST
COMPUTE RETAIL_COST_RT/D6 = RETAIL_COST_RT + RETAIL_COST;
BY COUNTRY
END

Or this, if you need to reset the running total (and if the data is in the correct order for the report):
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
SALES
COMPUTE SALES_RT/D6 = IF COUNTRY EQ LAST COUNTRY THEN SALES_RT + SALES ELSE SALES;
RETAIL_COST
COMPUTE RETAIL_COST_RT/D6 = IF COUNTRY EQ LAST COUNTRY THEN RETAIL_COST_RT + RETAIL_COST ELSE RETAIL_COST;
BY COUNTRY
BY CAR
END

What if I need to reset the total not just on country, but to only include records in the total that have a date that fall within a specific range in relation to the date of the record?

For example:
-the total for row 1 would have a total of all records that have a date value in the in the last 7 days from that date value (12/24/2013 to 01/01/2014).
-the total for row 2 would have a total of all records that have a date value in the in the last 7 days from that date value (12/25/2013 to 01/02/2014).

If you can translate "total of all records that have a date value in the in the last 7 days from that date value (12/24/2013 to 01/01/2014)" into an IF statement you should be able to put that in the COMPUTE.

something like:

COMPUTE TOT7= IF ID EQ LAST ID AND COUNTRY EQ LAST COUNTRY AND DATE-7 GT LAST DATE THEN SALES + TOT7 ELSE SALES;


but this just gives me a running total still for the whole data set, it does not re-set when the result is false.

Maybe you should move your COMPUTE into a DEFINE instead...

Because you're now testing based on a date, COMPUTE will use the last or first (can't remember which one is stored in the Matrix when not specified) date from your WHERE selection.
