Summary according portal data

Recommended Posts

Hi !

I'm wrestling with my database and now I'm stuck with this problem:

There are invoices in one table. They have Status: "not ready", "waiting for approval" and "approved". The accounting can choose which invoices are shown in the portal. The problem is how to present the Total of each sub group, when portal data is changed. Now it shows only "Grand total" of all sub groups (i.e. even though the invoice is not "approved" yet, it's sum is added to "total")

I hope you understood... ???

The accounting can choose which invoices are shown in the portal.

If you are filtering the portal by the status, it shouldn't matter ... you should get the total of all invoices which appear in the portal.

You can use cTotalInvoices in Parent as:

Sum ( thatPortal::InvoiceAmt) or

if you have a summary field in Invoices, Just place that on the layout. Place either of these fields outside the portal.

So your relationship would be:

MainTable::ParentID = Invoices::ParentID

AND

MainTable::gStatus = Invoices::Status

Thanks LaRetta and Soren ! That Sum -function worked well enough. Those relations are still quite tricky for me, so I find this plain Sum easier.
