Accessing Compute Expression

Accessing Compute Expression

(OP)
I am trying to gain access to two fields on my datawindow. One is in the Footer called "total" Currently is has a Compute Expression of sum(if(pyd_pretax='E',0,pyd_amount) for all) I do some checking on the datatable for some conditions and if the condition is met, I need to change the value of the total field.

The code I am using is:

if ll_tarifftotal > 0 then
if ll_tarifftotal <= ll_order total then
dw_triptab.object.total.setitem(1,"ll_tarifftotal","ll_ordertotal")
end if
end if

I am having problems changing the value of the "total" field in the footer of the data window.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

RE: Accessing Compute Expression

You will either have to modify the expression which comes up with the total (the 'sum...' from your example) or you need to change the field to a calculated value and set it based on your business rules.
