    An easy report

    sota

      I'm at the stage of going insane!!!

       

      I have a file with quite a number of fields in it.

      My problem is I just can't get a simple report to work.

       

      The scenario is; I want my report to give me a sum or total of the value of the various "Manufactures" and the total value {Dollar_Val} paid to all of them.

       

      If I can break this hurtle then I can build upon this to create the rest of the reports. I've tried the examples but to no avail. There is just something I'm missing.

       

      Best regards,

      Rob Main

          And of course - we are missing absolutely everything.

           

          Provide as much detail as you can.

          Clone of the file if possible; descriptions of table and fields; relationship graph; etc.

            I have a file with quite a number of fields in it.

            This is the critical detail and likely the source of your trouble. How you organize your data into fields, records and tables is a critical part of getting a solution designed that works for you.
