I have a report that has a group section. In that group section I have a textbox called BranchPoints that is an expression to get the points for each branch Here is the expression(=IIf(Sum(Fields.points) > 2500, 2500, Sum(Fields.points) )). In my header section, i need a textbox that will have an expression that needs the sum of the branch points. I cant have a total sum of the report. Is there a way in the header expression that I can call the textbox (branchpoints). So this is what I am looking for in the header textbox

=Sum(BranchPoints)

Is this possible? In crystal you can create a field and use it anywhere else in the report. Can Telerik do this?
I am doing this all through the report interface. I am not doing it programmatically.

Hi Cade Cote,

Since Q2 2008 version of Telerik Reporting you can use DataSource fields in the page header/footer sections. So if you need the grand total of the report to be rendered on each page you can use an appropriate expression with the SUM aggregate function.

If you need some kind of running total for each page (sum based on the rows rendered on the current page) this is not available in the current implementation of our product.

If you still have any issues please write us again or open a support ticket where you can attach a simple report demonstrating your difficulties.

Hi Fabio,

If you're referring to the running total functionality - we have not been able to work on that yet, but it is in our TODO list.

All the best,

This is affecting us too. We are trying to reproduce a government document with carried forward (total) at the bottom of each page, and a brought forward value at the top of each page.

We are likely to abandon Telerik Reporting for this report. This is a serious limitation.

I am surprised this limitation exists.  I hope you will be able to implement it soon?
