How do I get the absolute (Relative to the page) PinX of a shape within a

group?

I have a shape in a stencil I want to group with other objects on a variety

of pages. I can then run a report based on the shape data and location of the

shapes I have added.

Alternatively how do I add formulas via shape data sets this would avoid me

adding and grouping the shape? If I add data as strings it just treats the

formula as a string, if I try and add them as Number it complains the formula

isn't a number.

FYI the shape has a Shape data propety "Rack" with a value "=INT((PinX-475.3

mm)/750.6 mm)+1"
