Daily Balance in a Check Register


This topic is 2632 days old. Please don't post here. Open a new topic instead.

I have a checkbook journal with a calc that figures the balance. 

I know this should be easy, but I am having a hard time figuring out how to capture the balance daily (the end of the day) and do a simple report, list, or portal that shows the daily balance.  ((kind of what you see when logging in to your bank).

 

Any ideas anyone?

Than you in advance.

You should not try and do this through a calc field.  Each transaction should be its own record and store the balance at the end of the transaction.  The last transaction of the day will have the correct balance.  Statically stored.

 

That will make reporting very fast, trying to do this with calculations will make for terrible performance.

      I know the solution is probably very easy but it escapes me. I got this database, which I use to create invoices, year after year, I created a report page where with a neat summary field I get the "lifetime revenues", "lifetime general expenses", "lifetime total taxes" and "lifetime total invoices number", which is handy, but I need to have the same data broken down by year, and I can't figure out how to achieve that.
      In another post I have been suggested to consolidate the three tables I had (Invoices 2018, Invoices 2019 and Invoices 2020) into a single table (Invoices) and then use a "subsummary" which would give me the data I want based on how I sort the records but I am not sure how to use subsummaries nor I am sure I want something where I have to multiple click to re-order records to get data one at a time; I'd rather prefer a report where a calculation of some sort would make a sum of the total revenue of my invoice records broken down by year, as I exemplified in the database I'm attaching, is that possible in an easy, possibly not involving complicated subsummaries way?
      I'm beginning to get desperate on the subject, please have mercy.

      Hi everyone!
      I have a text field, with each sentence separated by ¶ .
      I would like to create buttons for each line in this field, so that I can copy each line individually (and paste manually in different application for example)
      I assume that it's easy to do in calculation with GetValue, and make a script using Get (ScriptParameter) = line number in that field, for each button. ( I ll need only 7-10 lines max).
      1. I can't figure out what script function I need to use to make a selective copy...
      2. If one of the option is Set Selection function - how would it work in my case?
      Thank you!

      I have always developed with FileMaker for windows. I have bought myself a MacBook Air and love it. So now I am using FileMaker 16 Pro advance for MAC. I know that MAC does not label their directories like windows does. So I am having problems figuring out to get the right coding to access my photos. I have a folder called "Photos" that reside on the C: drive in windows. Then I reference that folder so pictures will populate automatically when I put in a record. Here is what I have on the windows fileMaker:
      ImagePath:
      Let ( [ // Transform the contents of a container field named Images to text ImageRef = GetAsText ( ImagePath); Photos = Position ( ImageRef; "/"; 1; PatternCount ( ImageRef; "/")) ]; Middle ( ImageRef; Photos + 1; Length ( ImageRef ) - Photos ) ) images:
      "imagewin:/C:/Photos/" & Film::title & ".jpg" Then I go into Import folder and point to the folder all the photos are in. The problem I have now is how to point to that folder in "imagewin", is their an alternative called imagemac, then I could put in Macintosh HD/Users/patricks/Documents.  The folder is in the Document folder, called Photos. Thank you for any help.

      Hi guys,
      I’m brand new working with FM and would like your help with a calculation if I may. I want a calculation to display an estimated number of paint tins needed to paint a boat based on it’s length and width. With this information I would also like the cost of the estimated paint. I'm assuming IF can not be used as there are too many variables, can CASE?
      With the boats width, I've got anything over 7 classed as wide, so I've been using Jobs::BoatWidth > 7 to define narrow and wide (only two classes of widths).  I'm using the table below to give our customers a rough idea at the moment but would like information to be displayed in FM specific to boats length and width for each customer after entering that data: Jobs::BoatWidth and Jobs::BoatLength. Cost of each tin is £26.32. Hope I haven't left anything out and thanks in advance.
