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.

    Re: Script help

    first add up all buys within a product
    add up all sells within the same product
    if there's no difference put a T in the code field of all lines for the buys and sell for that product.

    If there's a difference, how much is the difference.
    if you find a line with the same difference within that same product, change the code on that line to a P.
    if there's no even quantity with that difference, go to the first line for that product and check the quantity.
    If the quantity is bigger, split that line.
    if the quantity is smaller go to the next line...

    The important thing here is if the buys are more than sells, we split a buy line, if the sells are more than buys we split the sells line.

      Ok, so using my last example what would the table entries for that single product look like after the script is finished?

      -- tom

        Re: Script help

        in this case it

        the sells would be 3T
        any total of 3buys would have a T the rest would have a P

        What determines that ?
        It is entirely up to you as long as it's the correct difference of qty. There's no criteria.

          it should be like this

          B     s

            Re: Script help

            I think something like this would do the trick:

            Pseudo code
            For each product
                sum the buys
                sum the sells
                determine the difference
                set code to "T" for each line who's type has the smaller sum i.e.
                     if the sells are smaller, set all sell lines "T"
                spread the smaller sum across the lines comprising the larger sum as follows:
                    loop through the lines 
                        if the remaining_to_spread = the quantity mark that line T and set 
                               remaining_to_spread to zero
            	    if the remaining_to_spread is > 0 and > the quantity mark that line T and
                               subtract quantity from remaining_to_spread
                        if the remaining to spread is > 0 and < the quantity split the line 
            	    Then, finally, if there are other lines remaining mark them P

              Thanks Mike; I'll have to see how to transform that to real code.
