    Summary Fields for Status Report



      Summary Fields for Status Report


      I am working on application that tracks advertisements.  The file contains the following tables; newspaper issue, advertising log, and company.  The advertising log is linked to the company and newspaper issue tables.


      The advertising log also contains four "status" type fields; production status which has a value between 1-4, ASR value which has 5 different text values, contract status which has 2 possible values and placement which has multiple text values.


      I would like to create a status screen that would display the number of ads and or the $ for each status.  Something like the following:


      date Production Status  Number of Ads

      Jan-1 1 xx

      Jan-1 2 yy

      Jan-1 3 zz

      Jan-1 4 ww


      date  ASR Status Number of Ads

      Jan-1 scheduled    aa

      Jan-1 confirmed    bb

      Jan-1 printed        cc

      Jan-1 invoiced      dd


      date Placement Number of ADs Dollars

      Jan-1       A         xx                 $$

      Jan-1       B         xx                 $$


       date contract Status Sum of AD Price

      Jan-1     New                      $$

      Jan-1     OLD                       $$


      I am fairly new to Filemaker and I not sure where to begin.  Whether I can combine in one report or need to make multiple reports.  Ideally this summary/status area would be above the detail advertising log screen.  Any advice would be helpful.

      Thank you,
