      Calculation question

      Post

      I have a table that lists "quantity produced" and "type of process".  Id like to create a field that adds the quantity based on the type of process?

      Shift 1       Blending       10,000

      Shift 2       Milling             5,000

      Shift 1       Blending         7,000                       Total Blending ???????   Total Milling ????????

          Total for a given process over all records in the table or only a sub set of the records with that process?

            I want to know the total for each process in a given month.  Total "Blending" for September, Total "Milling" for September and so on...

            I would prefer this in a single field so that I can include it at the bottom of an existing report???

              Do you know how to set up an SQL query? The ExecuteSQL() function could be used to produce these totals.

              Will your report list all records for a specified month?

              Is there a date field in each record (and not a text field with a date in it)?

              A filtered portal and a summary field can be used to show this sub total specific to a given process. The details on how you would set that up depend on your answers to the above questions.
