just do a sort based on date field.
your event layout should have a subsummary section for when sorted by event date
then a body section where you put the event fields data
then sort by date and enter preview mode
Thank you for your suggestion, but if I understand it correctly, I am doing that now. I have to do 366 separate searches in order to get the total number of events per day. I would like to create a script that produces a report that shows those results. Its similar to searching a phone book to see how many "A's", "B's", etc., there are. I don't need the data, just a number.
I am very new to FMP and have taught myself the program. I am sill learning. Thank you for your patience.
Define a summary field as Count of <any field that cannot be empty>. Place that field in the sub-summary by date part. If you like, you can delete the body part of the layout, so you'll get a summary report only.
