Hi... I am having trouble with this:

function TEXT9_canRender()
             this.text = this.parent.text6.text()+this.parent.textadditamt1.text()
      return true

text6 is basically the total of a row in streamframe  I am trying to take it from the text box it is situated in on the footerband.  textadditamt is the amount of a field.

I am trying to take a total amount of a field from the streamframe and add it to textadditamt which appears in text on the footerband of the report.  

text9 is supposed to represent textadditamt + text6.

This works sometimes, but other times text9 is completely blank.  Not sure at all why it is blank sometimes.

I am not that familiar with this part of reports.  Think I need some help.  Thanks much!!!
