    Unanswered: Move a calculated field from one report to another report

    What I have going on is I have several reports, all that have a percentage calculated on them. What I need to do is move that percentage from one report to another report.

    I have tried the !Reports!Name!Name1, and for some reason I get the #Name? error. Does anyone else have any ideas?

    In the query just write

    Gst:[feildname]*.15

    Or
    Bla: ([feildname]*[otherfeildnam])+[otherfeildname]

    Gst and bla come the new feildname in the query

    Unfortuantley, my calculations aren't that easy. I need to add up all the people on a case mangers list, then count how many of them have been completed, (which is another filed), and then calcualte the percentage complete.

    That doesn't sound difficult to do in a query. Have a look at the aggregate functions.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.
