Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

  • page_total()

    This is an old issue that does not appear to ever have been fixed. In a report, page_total does NOT work. I can go in to more detail, but this has been discussed before. I am just wondering if there are any fixes or work arounds that others have discovered???

      Thanks for responding Frank.

      I know that pagecount works.

      Let me give a bit more detail. I have to show page totals at the bottom of each page.

        Would PageXofY do it?

          Re: page_total()

          Hi Frank,

          No. The report has been set up with a page footer. A calculated field called totpagefee has been defined for the page footer defined as page_total(fee) using alpha's genie.

          Rather than display to correct total of fee for a page, it simply shows tha name of the field (totpagefee) on the report, instead of the calculation.

              Re: page_total()

              I see you are looking for a total of a column of numbers at the bottom of each page not the total number of pages.

                I just setup up a simple example and the page_total() worked fine.

                When the fieldname shows instead of a value that means the calculation is not evaluating properly.

                Or you have a field label object instead of the field data object on the report....

                Is fee a numeric?

                Can you post a simple example here so we can see what is happening?

                  Re: page_total()

                  Thanks for all the replies. Gandhi, that was very useful - makes me think that the problem may be because I am using groups. I will test this out.

                  Al, yes FEE is numeric. The odd thing is that the other totals for FEE (by group for e.g.), compute correctly. It is just the page totals that are not working, at least fr me.
