    Summary field false total

      Hello Everyone,


      I'm new to QV and have some questions, becouse I found a problem within my report.

      I'm trying to calculate SUM on field Punktacja_Punkty from Table Punktacja. This table has the same ID field IDNagroda as the field in Table Kotly in which I gather the data (some serial numbers, users name and productID).


      Table KotlyTable PunktacjaTable Users








      The data from red fields and green are relational. Everything works during the data lookup ok but I wonder why SUM(Punktacja_Punkty) expression is not creating total of the filtered content. I.E. the sum for data below is only 26 instead of 226. Infact count(Kotly_ID) = 42 as it should.

                  Hi Marcin,


                  The problem is that the table Punktacja is a reference table like a price list or grade table and doing a sum just on that table will sum up the amounts without respecting how many times it is referred to in the the table Kotly.  You should either do a join between the Kotly and Punktacja table in the script or add a quantity column in the Kotly table to get the sum you are looking for.


                  Out of curiosity Kotly is drum and Punktacja is a grade scale?  I'm just wondering how good the polish-english translators are.

                      Hi Karl,


                      yes the Punktacja is a grade scale, but Kotly in this context are boilers (gas boilers I was thinking of).


                      afterall I wanted to summarize by the points of Kotly for each of users and also get the participation (count) the boilers by type.


                      Infact I think I'll try to create one more dataset for this purpose. Do you think its better to join the tables or concatenate them??
