If you are having problems with a report, you may find it useful to look at an intermediate file generated by the compiler. This file contains the Cicode from the formatted report. When Citect compiles a report, it first converts all the format statements into Cicode and then compiles the Cicode. Just before Citect compiles the Cicode, it writes out the generated Cicode into a file with the same name as the report with a ._CI extension. If you have a report in a file called REPORT.RPT you will see a file called REPORT._CI.

You can view this file to see what Cicode has been generated for your report. This may help you to find any problems in your report format. You can delete these files as they are regenerated the next time you compile. They are only generated for debugging purposes - Citect does not actually use these files, Citect uses its internal copy in memory.
