Report layout with two sub summary parts

Recommended Posts

jsword

Hello all,

 

I am having trouble with sub summary parts. I have a layout that I would like to have two sub summary parts on, both sorting by a different break field.

 

Right now, my first sub summary part sorts by a field called "Buyer Type." That sub summary works fine. When I insert another sub summary part (which I would like to have printed above the Buyer Type sub summary part) and select to have that sort by a different break field (Property County), the original sub summary part (which was set up to sort by "Buyer Type") switches to sort by Property County. If I go back to either sub summary part and change the break field manually, it automatically changes it for the other sub summary part.

 

My final layout should be ordered as follows: title header, sub summary by "property county", sub summary by "buyer type", trailing grand summary, footer.

 

Is it impossible to have two sub summary parts on a layout sorting by different fields in FM Pro 8.5, or is there a way around this?

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

You're in Layout Mode and you went to Part Setup?

I've never seen the addition of a new Part in the Part Setup dialog cause an existing part to change its definition. Make sure you're clicking the "Create" button and not the "Change" button.
