Did you sort the records?
Select Sort Records from the records menu and specify a sort that sorts your records by type of task, task, and project.
If you are using FileMaker 10 or 11, your summary report with all the sub summary parts should then appear with appropriate sub totals. With older versions, you'll need to enter preview mode to see this.
Thanks for your speedy repsonse! I think I'm using Filemaker 10 (I'm currently away from the office so I can't check).
That seems to be the recommended action when I try to look for help in FM's help pages. Can you explain what you mean by did I sort the records? I thought the records are sorted when I defined the sub-summary parts to sort by "type of task", "task" and "project".
Or do you mean sort the entire report layout?
Thank you so much!
You have to actually sort the records. If the break field specified for a sub summary part isn't part of the sort order, that sub summary part doesn't appear. You can actually use this fact as a way to create different reports from the same layout just be sorting the records differently.
Here's how to sort the records: While in browse or Preview mode, pull down the Records menu and select Sort Records. Select the three fields you've defined as break fields in your sub summary parts with the most general group listed first and the most specific listed last. (Type of task at top, Project at bottom, Task should be in the middle.) Then click sort.
Thank you so much, PhilModJunk! I shall try this first thing tomorrow morning. Hope it'll work.
I just want to say thanks again! I tried it out, and it works exactly how I wanted it to work!
