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: Report help

    There is a function in V10 to do this for you (*collect()).

    In V9 you will have to use table.external_record_content_get() wrapped in a strtran().

    I may have misunderstood your question. I thought you wanted a string containing the product descriptions for an invoice. You want to group by description and have it appear only once for each product?

          In alpha sports in drill through items it counts how many of a single product was sold through out all the invoices. I need to know the same thing so i can count how much of a certain product i sold so that i can see what we sale the most of.

                  Re: Report help

                  To Stan I looked it over and thats not it either. The report is supposed to take count of all of the product we have sold and than when there is one item on multiple invoices it draws that information on to the report and tells me how many times we sold that one specific item.There will be more than one item of course on the list just like the drill_through _items report on alpha sports version9.I looked through the calculated fields in the drill_through _items but nothing showed what they did to make it be like that.

                      Why not publicly for others to learn Ted?

                        It's not completed but answers SB's question.
                        You are more than welcome to a personal copy, but I hope to sell it when it's complete as it is part of a Project Tracking and Contractor Invoicing suite I'm building.
                        Ping me an e-mail address and I'll send you a copy of the two apps.

                              Simon,
                              Save the item to a Folder. Suggest you create one first as, say, Alpha Downloads.
                              Open the Folder, highlight the .ted file, right click and Rename to a .zip extension (the last 3 letters after the full stop is called the extension).
                              Once renamed, right click again and select Extract All.
                              Look for the Alpha Icon and click it, else, look for the Database using Alpha – More Databases and load it that way.
