A Summary Band needs a Trombone

Summary Bands received an improved instrument last night and our current phase in SVG and Variable Data Editor Alpha will soon be drawing to a close.  We will be introducing a couple of improvements next week that we hope will gather some serious interest in what we've been working toward; the Personalized SVG.  We aren't there yet, but next week will be a big step in that direction.

Anyway, back to Summary Bands; now all you need to do is enable the Summary Band, size it as desired and drag the data field you'd like to have auto-calculated onto the Band.  Go down to Variables, click the Gear and choose from:
  1. no calc
  2. Sum
  3. Average
  4. Lowest
  5. Highest
  6. Standard deviation
  7. Variance
  8. System
  9. First
  10. Distinct Count
with others on the way.

 The values can also be setup to be reset by the next incidence of Report, Page, Column or Master.
