One reason for the appearance of "an unknown value" is that a particular
field did not include a surety value that was at least to the threshold you
set for the report. For example, if the report is set for a surety
threshold of 2, and if you forgot to insert a value into the date field (or
inserted a value of 1, which is too low), the contents of the tag will
print, but instead of the date, you will get "an unknown value". You will
also get this warning if you forget to insert a surety value into the name
of a principal, or in a memo field, etc. One weakness of the warning is
that it doesn't tell you where to look: you may have to grope around to
find out what you did wrong.
There may be other causes for the appearance of this elusive and annoying
warning, but insufficient surety values are the most common problem.
Hope this helps.
