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.

    I can't see the complete filter, but this code should work. You might want to try it in your favorite editor or even AA's SQL Command window.
    Code:
    select o.OrderID,o.BillToCompany,o.ProjName,o.FirstDrop,o.CSR,o.UserDefDate7,o.UserDefDate8,o.DPStatus,o.DPInitials,o.EnterDate,o.MaterialIn,o.DateDataChecked,e.Initials
    from tblOrders o
    left join tblEmployees e on e.EmployeeID = o.CSR
    where <put filter here>
    order by firstdrop

    Will this mess with my filter? I need that in order to show the correct dates. 5 previous days and 15 days in the future.

    Hi Fernando,
    That code needs to go in the SQL Select Statement area as shown in the image.
    If you don't want to mess with that, it should work in your favorite SQL editor (I use Toad, many use Navicat).

    Thanks Gregg! I will give this a try. Where will I be inserting the code?

    Hi Fernando,

    The data source would certainly explain the issue.
    The solution could be as simple as creating a view to include the csr column from the tblEmployee table, or a sql select
    statement that would do the same thing.
    The code shown below should add a column named Initials which would then give the functionality you're looking for.

    Code:
    select o.OrderID,o.BillToCompany,o.ProjName,o.FirstDrop,o.CSR,o.UserDefDate7,o.UserDefDate8,o.DPStatus,o.DPInitials,o.EnterDate,o.MaterialIn,o.DateDataChecked,e.Initials
    from tblOrders o
    left join tblEmployees e on e.EmployeeID = o.CSR

    Re: I need Calculated Field Expression Help

    Unfortunately I can not send you you any test data but here is (hopefully a better) explanation of what I need to accomplish.

    My database consists of:

    OrderID = Order Number
    BillToCompany = Company being billed
    ProjName = Name of the project
    FirstDrop = Drop date
    CSR = Customer Service Rep
    UserDefDate7 = Date we received the job
    UserDefDate8 = Estimated date of completion
    DPStatus = Status of the job
    DPInitials = Initials of person working on the job
    EnterDate = Date job was submitted
    MaterialIn = Date material was received
    DateDataChecked = Processing completed date

    Everything works perfectly. Except for the fact that the CSR field being pulled in is a number instead of the actual customer service reps initials. That's why you see me using an if statement converting the numbers to the actual initials. As I have been looking into this, I see my datasource is tblOrders and it seems to be linked to tblEmployee which has EmployeeID (the number I am seeing) and Initials (which is what I need). Unfortunately it isn't in the current datasource I am using. Which is giving me this issue.

    If it cannot be parsed, there is an error in the javascript, post your switch case statement and surely someone will spot the error

    I'd be willing to do the testing myself if you provide the test data and the grid file.

    Good morning Charles. Thanks for the response. I tried that as well and I get an error message. Something about not being able to be parsed?

    you should try a switch case statement instead.

    I'm hoping you see the salesrep as well.
    It sounds like the csr column is not hidden.
    Check the image below to see how to hide the csr column.

    No luck. Now all I see are the actual numbers. For example, the picture i posted earlier, where the CSR was MEP is now showing 54.
