Hi All,

I have a one column report which uses presentation variables in filters and I want the value from this column to be saved in new variable so that i can use it in another related report for new column calculation. Is it feasible?

    How do you call another report? By drill from first report?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I want to calculate the grand total resulting by selecting the Region parameter. eg. I select R1 and R2 , the total from the first report will be 30. Is there a way I can save the result in a presentation ..variable and use that result for calculating the per. We want the Per in the new row. When i use the regular selected calculated item in answer, the values are in same row for per field (.33,.67). I want this in new row.SO i was thinking if I can create a new column using the presentation variable ,it can sovle the layout problem

    R1 R2
    10 20 30
    Per .33 .67

    R1 R2
    10 20 30 .33 .67
