How to get an accruate sum of the Yes values?

How to get an accruate sum of the Yes values?

I need to figure out a way to get a sum of just the yes values. It puts a yes if the employee should get Per Diem that day and a no if they do not. I have done this over and over in Crystal reports and in Crystal I would just create a formula to put a 1 for yes and a 0 for no. Sum it and be done. However, I have tried this in Report Builder and it doesn't work. When there are 4 days (3 yes and 1 no) no matter what I do I get 4.

Any ideas?

RE: How to get an accruate sum of the Yes values?

Hi, I think you can do this by either SUM() or COUNT().

Assuming that your fieldname that records the Yes or No is called perDiem, then something like this should work:


//Using COUNT


//Using SUM

RE: How to get an accruate sum of the Yes values?

You can use the Case Stmt with SUM like this:

WHEN fieldname = 'Yes' THEN 1
WHEN fieldname = 'No' THEN 0
) AS YesCount

If you COUNT, you'll get the count of all records.
