I'm having another issue while updating from v7.6.1 to v.7.7.02
In 7.6.1, I have reports that COMPUTE fields after an ACROSS. One of these computed fields is just a "tolerance" calculation for use in conditional styling so I NOPRINT the column. After copying the fex into the 7.7.02 environment, the NOPRINT does not work.
Has anyone run across this problem or know of a solution?

I don't know what the rules for your "tolerance" field are but if they can be calculated at the last BY-field level (excluding the ACROSS ones) you may probably do this in a multi-verb request.
DEFINE FILE CAR
CONTINENT/A10 = IF COUNTRY EQ 'JAPAN' THEN 'ASIA' ELSE 'EUROPE';
TABLE FILE CAR
COMPUTE FLAG/A1 = EDIT(COUNTRY, '9'); NOPRINT
BY COUNTRY NOPRINT
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=DATA, BACKCOLOR=YELLOW, WHEN=C1 EQ 'E', $
TYPE=DATA, BACKCOLOR=GREEN, WHEN=C1 EQ 'J', $
It still requires more than one step but at least you can avoid HOLDing and joining back to access your field for special formatting.This message has been edited. Last edited by: njsden,
