I've inherited a wonderfully complicated database that I'm trying to patch. I have some summary fields for the entire Breeding table that are supposed to display in Colony. Due to the sort order for some other content on the layout, the first record in Colony does not have a matching record in Breeding. As a result, the summary fields for Breeding are blank. How do I setup my layout so that the summary fields are not blank? Or is it even possible...?

Heather, I'll take a stab at this but I'm not sure I understand the terminology you're using. Are we talking Gregor Mendel stuff here?

Colony: the parent File?

Breeding: related records to show how the colony got to be the colony, chromosomally speaking?

Please, tell me more or send a file by private topic and a clue or two.

What version of FileMaker are you using?

If the first record has no matches, the summary would show zero ("0") unless zeroes are suppressed in the number format. If there should be a non zero summary ("none" is an answer, after all), there's probably something about the match field definitions, indexing, or even overall data structure that needs attention.

Or, did you solve the problem already?
