Reproducing the Issue
- In Crystal Reports, create a report off any data source.
- Create a formula in whhich you declare a variable and assign a value to it. ( Variable – Assign Value )
NumberVar test := 777
- Create a formula to display the variable. ( Variable - Display )
- Create a formula with a second variable. ( Variable - Calculation )
- Add 2 extra subsections to the Report Header section
- Insert the formulas in the following sections:
- “Variable – Assign Value” in the “Report Header –a” section
- “Variable – Display” in the “Report Header – b” section
- “Variable – Display” again in the “Report Header – c”, and in the “Report Footer” section
- “Variable – Calculation” in the “Page Footer” section
- Resize the Report Header A, B and to fill the first page so the Report Header C starts at the next page
- Preview the report and notice the variable value on page 2 is NULL, and the variable value equal zero in the Report Footer section.
- Variables are reset to zero when the Report Header is larger than a page, and there is a formula with a second variable in the Page Footer section.
