Sum of elements


(Guest) #1

Hi.
I am trying to create a list of construction elements with LL12. Is it possible to set the field with the sum of all components e.g. mass above(not below) the table ? When I set it on top of table it shows 0 because nothing was summed yet.

Well-timed question…

I guess you need to upgrade to LL17 :wink: This is one of the new top-features of LL17 (precalculation function).

What about programming in Visual Basic ?? Would that work ??

Well you have access to the database. So of course you can do that yourself, for example by using

“SELECT SUM(PRICE) WHERE…”

and set the value into a LL field. This is always faster than PRECALC anyway, if you have the way to know the value beforehands by “native database” means.
