All,
I have a requirement where i need to implement the same forumale to TOTAL as in the column calculations.
For eg: Column2=(Column1+50/100) then the total should be Total(column2)=(Total(Column1)+50/100).
Hope you got the point. How can i capture the total of the column then re use it for another TOTAL calculations.
Let me know if you have any solutions.
Regards
R.Prasanna

Calculate your column2 using a COMPUTE statement, then
ON TABLE SUMMARIZE
applies whatever COMPUTE's you are using to the GRANDTOTAL line.

Prasanna,
What Susannah is saying is that if you want to re-calculate at total time than you must use COMPUTE and not DEFINE. For totalling then use SUMMARIZE instead of SUBTOTAL or COLUMN-TOTAL.
