A formula criteria???

A formula criteria???

A formula criteria???

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me simply how to create a formula to 'SUM' all the values in an amount field.  The values I want to include in the sum are only ones which are for a certain product! (in another field).

Thanks for any help!


RE: A formula criteria???

Use the Sum(fld,condFld,cond) function under the Summary folder in the functions list.

Inside the brackets insert the field you wish to sum in 1st, then the field that contains the information you want to sum on, and then insert the value in your conditional field where you want the sum to occur.



RE: A formula criteria???


I don' think using the:


will help here.  The condition field can only be a group field in the report, and it doesn't allow you to set a criteria.  


What you need is actually a conditional total.  There are several ways to do this that are outlined in my FAQ on common formulas.  This FAQ is in the Crystal General forum.
