Hi, this is an odd one.  In Visio 2003 I'm running a report to get data from shapes.  Each shape which is in scope for the report has in its shapesheet.

The report look for all shapes with, and then extracts the status of another field: user.shapestatus.

It works well, except there are some anomalies in the figures compared with counting a total on a printout.  After some investigation is comes down to one group which has three shapes inside it, for some reason the report ignores these shapes.  If I ungroup, all is well and the totals match.  There are other groups too, and their shapes are counted without a problem.

Any suggestions welcome.
