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.

Trying to figure out how to create temp table based on filters in the parent and data in the child.

  • Trying to figure out how to create temp table based on filters in the parent and data in the child.

    Well as if the subject made absolutely no sense.

    I have a set wo.set

    The parent is wo_header with a one to many child I need to pull a summary total from.

    Using a operation as a guidance for the xbasic only allows me to pull data from the child because if I use the set as source I am not allowed to select any of the one to many tables.

    If I select the one to many table as the source then I cannot use filters based on data in the parent.

    So bottom line is I need to test 2 logical fields in the parent and then only pull summary totals from the child table if the parent logical are met.

    What I have now works but pulls all summary data from the child. I need to only summarize records in the child where the logical field "Ordered" = .F. and the logical field "Invoice" = .T.

    summarize_db_name = filename_decode("[PathAlias.ADB_Path]\order_items.DBF")
    tbl ="wo_items")'this is a one to many child table in the wo.set
    ON ERROR GOTO ERROR0301201613210257
    sum.db = summarize_db_name
    sum.db_dd_delete = .F.
    sum.result_overwrite = .T.
    sum.order = "STYLE+COLOR"
    sum.filter = ""
    sum.options = "I"
    sum.fields = 12
    sum.field1 = "STYLE"
    sum.code1 = 0
    sum.field2 = "COLOR"
    sum.code2 = 0
    sum.field3 = "XS"
    sum.code3 = 1
    sum.field4 = "S"
    sum.code4 = 1
    sum.field5 = "M"
    sum.code5 = 1
    sum.field6 = "L"
    sum.code6 = 1
    sum.field7 = "XL"
    sum.code7 = 1
    sum.field8 = "X2"
    sum.code8 = 1
    sum.field9 = "X3"
    sum.code9 = 1
    sum.field10 = "X4"
    sum.code10 = 1
    sum.field11 = "X5"
    sum.code11 = 1
    sum.field12 = "X6"
    sum.code12 = 1
    GOTO CONTINUE0301201613210257
    ui_msg_box("Error","Error running Summarize Operation"+crlf()+error_text_get())
    'Add the table just created by the Summarize operation to the Database..
    Report off the order_items.dbf looks like this.

    A number of ways come to mind.
    The easiest would be to summarize from a mapped table :- wo_items with the two fields from wo_header

      Re: Trying to figure out how to create temp table based on filters in the parent and data in the child.

      Not sure if what you said is what I got to work so far.

      Basically I am now creating one temp table based off the filters and then creating the final temp table based off the code above.

      Now granted I could have gotten the results into a report real easy just using a query and not even using temp tables but I need to do some more stuff that requires the data is pulled out of the tables in the set.

      It took code from 3 different operations to get the main part of the results I wanted right.

      Now I need to give them an option to check in house inventory and deduct any that match from the order list and at the same time remove any used from inventory.

      To do this it must check the garment Style, Color and Size of what they need to produce the orders and then check the inventory to see if they have any already in stock. Then print out a report of what to order and what to pull from stock.

      And then after all that it must go back and mark all the records as items_ordered

      Good thing I love math.

        What if you copied records from the set into a temp table and then summarized the temp table? That way your fields from the parent would be included and you could construct a filter.

        Discernment is not needed in things that differ, but in those things that appear to be the same. - Miles Sanford

          That is basically what I ended up doing Robin.

          Copy the records from the set that meet the filter into a temp table.
          Then delete all blank records in the temp table if any
          Then summarize the records in that temp table and put them in another temp table. This table will contain the items they need to order.

          I have that all working now.

          Next I need to allow them to check in house inventory and subtract any matching Style/Color/Size that match.
          Once I have that I can make a report telling them what they need to order and what they need to pull from stock.
