Merging files

Hi to everybody.
Excuse for my english, but i'm italian and i don't use
english often.
Programming is not my primary job but i made some program for the company where i work.
My problem is:
How i can process an filter a file and put the sum of a filed on other file?
I use clarion 5.
I need to sum some invoices from different files
and the result put on a file for process all results.
Thanks for your cooperation and patience.

Are you running a process, a report, a browse or is it pure coding???

>I need to sum some invoices from different files

Depends on above question, but you can save results on a queue, and process that queue instead!.

Could you can be a little more especific??? an example maybe???

Best Regards


RE: Merging files

ok. i'll try
I don't know how to do it.
I need to make a simple cash flow program.
I've some files:
Invoices - Payments - Bank
I need to sum the not payed bills (filter like inv:date<today()) and put this value on file FLOW.
The same for the payments and for bank account.
After i'll put in FLOW file all invoices open, all payments
sorted by date.
In this way i'll have the situation for accounting dept.
I did this work in dos version but in a little strange way,
i mean, i've made some reports for obtain the data needed
and i saved the results on FLOW.
After i modified the code for not dispaly the report
(i used report3), and worked.
I've some problem in windows version to make this "bricolage".
I don't know how to do this.
Maybe with process file and a little code added?
I don't know very well write code for clarion.


RE: Merging files

Well, this is some complex to explain with words... so it'll be better to do it with a little app.

Please email me!-
