Re: Select number of report lines

The easiest way I can think of doing this is to create three fields:

1. A ParameteRR field which holds the number of records you want to create the limit for
2. A running total field of the value you want to restrict (count)
3. A boolean / logical calculated field comparing the ParameteRR with the total and returning True if it's less and False if more

Then on the line in question, create a line-logic property and set it to print if True. When you run the report or export it, you should only get the lines that correspond.

Thanks Chris

By the time my original message had been approved ( about 5 days) I'd worked it out !

I did a running count of the group and a print line test that only printed while the count was less than 20
