Forms and calculated fields

Postby mjwilliamsmj » Sun Jun 21, 2009 10:55 am

Hi,

I have setup a database to take inventory in different rooms of a house. As the data is entered, calculated fields keep track of totals of categories of items - ie. first record totals itself, second record totals first and second, etc.
The last record will have data for the last room and the running category totals.

I have setup forms to collect the inventory in categories, and all that works well.

I have a Total Form that shows category totals, and a total value for inventory. The problem - the Total form displays the totals on the current record! I would like to AUTOMATICALLY advance to the last record on the Total Form.

There CAN be 2 button actions, but not when jumping to a form, or moving to the last record.
Is there a mechanism for accomplishing this?

I see what you're getting at there, and per the previous posting, it's not yet possible. This is a great practical use for such a feature however! I'll add it to our features todo list. What version of HanDBase are you running and what platform?
