Summary:
Iteration through variables

Would it be possible to include a mechanism whereby variables are calculated more than once.

There are two reasons for this:

1 - Variables are evaluated in their order of appearance in the jrxml file. Any variable refering to later variables returns null. Recalculating these fields would ensure that they all contain a proper value.

2 - There may be instances where it is necessary to perform calculations many times in order to arrive at the desired figure. In order to avoid circular references, a limit would need to be applied to restrict the iteration count.This would be similar to
how Excel, for example, would handle calculations. I am fairly new to iReports but have already come up with a need to perform calculations based on calculations.

Thanks
