Adding up a list

Postby citizengray » Thu Dec 25, 2014 12:25 pm

I need to gather a list of data -
For example a number from 1 to 10 every day for a month.
I also need to add up those entries.
What is the best way to do this?

Hi,

Thanks for posting.

My recommendation is to use the Run Report feature. To use this feature, open your database to the list of records and tap on the field name at the top of the list. When a popup dialog appears choose Run Report. Another dialog with a sum and additional information will appear.

Hope this helps. If you are needing something else please let me know.
Kind Regards,

Well I need this to be a live field - i need the total to show up automatically.
I know this is possible with the Calculated field but that seems limited to working with 6 other fields.
I thought about doing it in stages (A= 1,2&3 / B= 4,5&6 / C = A+B) but that creates fields that are confusing if i cant hide them
