Calculate Qty depending on another field

Calculate Qty depending on another field

Calculate Qty depending on another field


OK so what I'm trying to do is do perform a calculation depending on the TRANSACTION CODE... so in the example below the OOREC transaction are parts produced and SUNREC are parts scrapped, so for ORDER_NO 12345 we need to add the OOREC with is 150 and subtract the SUNREC 25 which should give the result of 125.

CODE -->

OOREC             13/08/2018  100   12345      M1234
OOREC             14/8/2018   50    12345      M1234
SUNREC            14/8/2018   25    12345      M1234 
This is probably really simple to do but my brain has gone blank, so any help would be appreciated.


RE: Calculate Qty depending on another field

Create a Formula

@Total Qty

If {TransactionCode} = 'SUNREC' then {QTY}*-1 else else {QTY}

Yu might need to expand this if other codes affect qty differently

Replace QTY with this formula and then perform sum summary as usual

Perfect, thanks Ian appreciate your help.
