Hi,

Not sure that this is the place to ask this question, but here goes:

I have a field with a value list of Names of employees.

On a separate layout I was the database to:

1. Calculate how many records have been created by each user (Employee name provided by value list) and place the result in another field.

2. Display the data in a table format -

Name (first in value list) #of entered records

Name (next in value list) #of entered records

Name (next in value list) #of entered records

etc...

Name (last in value list) #of entered records.

Please help. I am just starting with FileMaker.

Create a Summary field and define it as 'Count' of the Employee field.

Create a Columnar layout with the Employee field in the body and a sub-summary (sorted by Employees) containing the summary field.

Now, when you sort the records by Employee, you will see a list showing what you want.

Korky,

First off thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately I still cannot make it happen. If I place both foelds in the Sub-summary part then nothing is displayed in Browse or Preview Layouts. If they are in the body portion then the same names reappear in the list.

and also the # of records is the total number for each employee, whereas I need it to show only records entered by each employee next to their name.

Thanks,
