Title

How to renumber @@ in sub summaries?

Post

Background: Filemaker Pro Adv. 10, both server and client on both Mac 10.5.8 server and client, respectively.

 

I'm making reports and the records need to be numbered under each sub summary. The numbering needs to restart in the next sub summary.

 

For example:

Subsummary is Buses:

    Bus A

           1. Student A

           2. Student B

    Bus B

           1. Student C

           2. Student D

 

I've tried these solutions:

  (Can't use because sub summaries are not fixed.)

http://www.fmforums.com/forum/showtopic.php?fid/28/tid/212096/  (I kept getting the same result as below, where they're all numbered "1") 

http://my.advisor.com/doc/17897  (I keep getting the following where they're all numbered "1":  ) 

 

    Bus A

           1. Student A

           1. Student B

    Bus B

           1. Student C

           1. Student D

 

I've tried "@@", but the numbers just keep increasing, like below:

 

    Bus A

           1. Student A

           2. Student B

    Bus B

           3. Student C

           4. Student D

 

 

Is there a way to get the text "@@" to restart numbering in each sub summary? That would be the easiest thing.

 

I'm still very new at Filemaker development, so any step-by-step would be appreciated.
