- The shared variable in 2 subreports that were put in one section is not valuated from left to right
- It is evaluated by the sequence of creation of subreports

Reproducing the Issue
- Create 2 subreports, which use one shared variable.
- Put the 2 subreports into one section (eg. Page Header)
- - See the attached CR report.
- The shared variables are not evaluated "left-to-right" or "right-to-left" but rather in the order they were created in that section.
- The shared variable in the subreport that was firstly created will be evaluated first, and then the shared variable in the secondly created subreport and so on.
If you need to change the evaluation order of your shared variables, youd don't need to recreate everything, instead you can move the subreport to a different section of the report, and then move it back to the corresponding report section.
