Records have an ID#, and a PID#.
I need a third field to show how many occurrences of the record's PID# there are in other records. A find won't do; I need the third field for my purposes..
I need a field that shows how many times a specific entry occurs in another record in the same table.
please delete one.
If you are using the full field content for a match, you could create a related TO for the same base table matching on that field, and use the COUNT function:
Count ( yourMatchTO::yourMatchField )
And can include "-1" in the calc to not count current record as matching itself.
I don't know how.
Use the Help and user documentation PDFs to learn the basics of working with relationships and using the calculation functions. These are must-have info for doing anything beyond messing about.
What I specifically "don't know how" to do is remove a post from this forum. My starting entry is a duplicate.
