The subject line says it all, other than the fact that I've been a huge fan of field reports for over ten years now and I've never known how these values are calculated!

Thanks for clues,

Hi Don,

Good question- the way they work is that we tally up the running total for the field in question. let's say the values for that field are:

1

3

-5

10

40

Now we're adding them up, so one by one we see that 1 + 3 = 4, then 4 - 5 = -1, then -1 + 10 = 9, then 9 + 40 = 49

Looking at these numbers, what is the lowest point the total reached? It's -1 and the highest is 49, so those are the minimum totals. This is different than the minimum value which would be -5 and maximum value which would be 40. Hope that clears it up- mainly useful for running balance type of fields!

Thanks for the excellent reply, Dave!

Now let's see if I can come up with a way to *use* those numbers.
