    Reporting/Summary Help

    talkersw

      Hey guys, I am a big novice in reporting with Filemaker. I was wondering if anyone had any good references and instructional videos they recommend. I would like to create reports with multiple criteria, but do not know how.

       

      My specific question is regarding Summary Fields. What I need to do is create counts under a multi criteria scenario; like drill down type of counts. For example, lets say I have 50 US States. I have a region column, a population column. I want a count of all midwestern states under X number of people. I think the report wizard is where I do this, but Im not sure if it is possible via calculation fields. Any feedback?

          Sounds like a good starting place for you would be sub-summaries. 

           

          They can be done through the Layout / Report Wizard or done manually on any layout.
