Totals on custom reports

Postby sknopik » Sun Mar 20, 2011 4:34 pm

Is it possible to add or subtract fields, or do a SUM on custom reports?

Unlike programs where the reports and queries are the place you perform this, HanDBase has calculated fields so that you can do this right within the data of the database. So you can have running totals and such within the database and don't even need a report to see these values!

That said, you can then include that sum or calculation field in the report and show this. Unfortunately one negative by-product for this is that it will show for every record in the report and not just the final footer, but that is something I hope to expand on over time.

Hope this helps!
