How do you re-cycle through a list of records, multiple times?

Hi,____In the Xbase designer, how do you output a list of records, or maybe a list of expressions based on those values, and then re-cycle the same list and output some other expressions based on those same records?____So if you had a last name field, and you wanted a list of the first letters of the last name for all records, and then below that you wanted a list of the last letters of that last name.____I^ve done this before, but forgot how.__

I think you^re talking about a "multi-scan" report. The basic structure is a non-important master table which scans into the same related file multiple times. You^d have to give each one of the relations a different alias of course. This will cause R&R to cycle through the first relation and its calculations and then do the same thing with the second relation. You have to ensure that your calculations know which related table they^re working on so that your first-letter formula works on the first scan item and your last-letter formula works on the second scan item.____It^s an advanced concept. I hope I answered it clearly enough for you to take if from here.

Yep, I remember now. Thanks for the refresher.
