    reporting on a survey response

    rubinjm

      I have a calculation field named Faculty Whiteboard that specifies "Y" or "N" based on the answer to a survey question.

       

      Calculation is

      If (Surveys::_pk_SurveyID = 6 and Questions::Order = 1 and PatternCount(Response; "Attending Name") > 0; "Y" ; "N")

       

       

      One of the fields in the Respondents table is Faculty Name. I would like to create a report that lists the percentage of "Y" answers for each Faculty Name. I'm not sure the best way to approach this. (Not sure if I've supplied enough info here.)

          First off, I would do a Case() instead of a If(). That makes things easier to read

           

          Case (

          // If this is correct you do this

          Surveys::_pk_SurveyID = 6 and Questions::Order = 1 and PatternCount(Response; "Attending Name") > 0; "Y";

          // Otherwise you do that. You can comment so it becomes easier to understand

           

          "N"

          )

           

          For this problem you need another calculated field, say Faculty Whiteboard Number

           

          Case(

          // If true

          Faculty Whiteboard = "Y"; 1;

          // Not true

          0

          )

           

          Then you do a Statistic field that use this new field and put that Statistic field in your report

            I'm concerned about the colons that I see in your calculation.

             

            Surveys::_pk_SurveyID = 6 and Questions::Order

             

            are both fields from a related table (occurrence). The relationships between that and the table where you've defined this calculation plus the "context" you specify for it will all affect your results.

             

            And keep in mind that if there are many related records in Surveys and/or many related records in Questions, your calculation, as written, can only "see" data from the "first related record". In an unsorted relationship, the first related record happens to be the oldest related record. For sorted relationships, the first related record will be determined by the sort order.
