    Summary Question

    scoostraw

      I'm creating a layout and showing a field from table "A", which is a summary of one of the other fields in that table.  Works fine.

       

      I want to also display a field from a related table ("B"), which is a summary of one of the other fields in that table.  Same scenario.  But for some reason I cannot get it to work.  It is showing me the value for each record as I scroll thru - even tho when I go browse the table itself, the value for each and every record is what I am trying to display.

       

      I am at wit's end.  Obviously I am missing something...(!)

          Well I never did figure out how to do this, and AFAIK it is not possible.

           

          What I ended up doing was to create a calculated field in my primary table, with the "calculation" merely being the content of the field I needed from the related table.  Once I had that data in my primary table, I was able to then manipulate it the way I needed.

           

          I'm posting what I ended up doing for the benefit of others who were stuck like I was.
