First Occurrence of a Number

First Occurrence of a Number

First Occurrence of a Number

CR v9/Peachtree 2006/Btrieve

I have a report that lists invoices with the following columns:

invoice #
invoice date
customer name
invoice amount

The report is not for a specific date range, it is just a history of all the invoices for the company.

How can I find the first cccurrence of an invoice amount, like $5000.00?  When the first occurrence is found, I want to print the invoice #, invoice date, customer name and invoice amount in the report footer.  Is there a formula I can create to do this?

RE: First Occurrence of a Number

Export the data to a CSV file and import into FoxProf (VFP)  After that it's easy just index on amount unique and you have your answers.

What about all the other occurences of the number?  What do you want to do with them?
