Getting a total of a certain value in a field in same table?

Recommended Posts


Table has field called Field1, I would like summary total of the current found set to say how many time 'Apple' is in the Field1

Is this possible?

It is possible, but it will require two fields: a summary field defined as List of Field1 and a calculation field (result is Number) =

ValueCount ( FilterValues ( sList ; "Apple" ) )

where sList is our summary field.

The reason why this is not simple is that no single value in Field1 is supposed to be special. Filemaker provides a simple way to produce a separate count for each and every value: sort the found set by Field1 and place a summary field counting the records in a sub-summary by Field1 part.
