sum not working properly
I've done something really obviouse, but i don't know what.
I am trying to count the occurance of a word in a field by date (month and year), over a 3 month period.
in one table called coverage i create a calculation field called month year with this calculation
"(MonthName ( Date of Publication _dd_mm_yyyy_ ) & Year ( Date of Publication _dd_mm_yyyy_ ))"
I also create another field to count the occurance of the word "feature"
"If ( Type of Coverage = "Feature"; 1 )"
in another table called coverage report
i count the number of occurances by the if statment is to filter by companie and in this case all occurances in october (Month1)
"If ( (Coverage::Customer = Company) and (Month1 = Coverage::month year); Sum(Coverage::FeatureCounter );0)"
i do exactly the same line in 2 other fields but replace Month1 with Month2 and Month3 (November and December)
the problem is that the count is not right, I should get 2,1,1 respectivly but I get 0,0,4
Why is it counting them all in the december date? I can swap the order of the month1,2,3 so that December is 2 or 1 and december always has the total.
The only thing I can think of is that it has something to do with the fact that december is the date of the last entry in table "coverage"
