Counting the value of an entry in a report column

Counting the value of an entry in a report column

Counting the value of an entry in a report column

I have a report field with values of either yes or no. Can I create a formula to count the number of "yes" entries in that column? Example: The field is Contracts (do we have one or not with the customer). If we do, the value is yes, if we don't, the value is no. I want to be able to show the count of "yes's.

RE: Counting the value of an entry in a report column

Within Notes4.5 you can create a view that will identify the forms within the database you will be calculating. create a first column with the following specs:
View Properties:
1. name the coumn "Totals"
2. Select the sorting tab on the prperties box and then locate at the bottom where it says "Totals". select Totals.
3. select the checkbox "Hide detailed rows".
4. Close properties box and then enter "1" in the default formula for that column.

After this you will need to create a column that will allow you to show the field on the form that is capturing this yes/no input.Make this field sorting and show twistie.
From that point you should be able to now calculate how many of each input you have.

RE: Counting the value of an entry in a report column

In an Approach report you have an option to summarize values using a calculated-type field. The formula would be something like this:

CountYes = SSum(If(Contracts = 'Yes',1,0))

Put the field in a summary panel.
