Record count in another table

Recommended Posts

I have a main table and a separate table called the checklist which has 7 different people, each with their own checklist.

I'm trying to create a little red number (like the red email number on the bottom of the Mac dock) that shows in real time the number of checklist items for each user in the main table.

 

Is this at all possible without slowing down the system?

Hi,

 

Make a relationship between the two tables if they are not related yet, then use "Count()" function to count related records from the related table. So it is going to be something like this:

 

This is the relation:

Table 1 "StaffID" = table 2 "StaffID"

 

This is the calculation:

Then in table 1 make a calculation field and call it "StaffRecordsCount" for example. The calculation would be "Count(Tabel 2 :: StaffID)".

 

You may name the fields whatever that does make sense to you. 

 

I hope this would help you.

 

Regards,

What exactly does a "checklist" mean here? If it's a field formatted as checkboxes, why is it necessary to count the related records? Wouldn't it be simpler (and faster) to count the checked values?
