    Default Printing a form

    Good Morning after Christmas: I am using Alpha5 v10.5. When attempting to print a form (current record) my year to date year to date calculated fields are printing either 0.00 or same as my current fields.

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    The most often advice is forms are for viewing and reports are for printing. That wouldn't affect your calculated fields. Not much we can offer without a sample table/set and the support files to diagnose.

    Stan,

    I followed the advice and created a report which serves my needs. With the print a form I was under the assumption that "WYSIWYG" played a role. Apparently not. Not printing calculated fields as what is being viewed. No problem just curious. Thanks again.

    It would depend on the calculation expression. You can define calculated fields that reference the current filter for the form but it isn't a built in constraint.

    Glad you have it working.
