    Summing up values from different text objects?

      Hi All,

       

      I have a couple of text objects that show how many times different issues show up in the data. Each of those objects has a quite complex count-if expression behind them and outputs one single number.

       

      Example:

           TextObject1: shows how many times x exists

           TextObject2: shows how many times y exists

           TextObject3: shows how many times z exists

       

           Now I want to have one 'total' text object that sums up what the other text objects show.

       

           Basically

           TextObject4: =TextObject1 + TextObject2 + TextObject3

       

      Sure, the simplest way would be to repeat all expressions in the fourth object but this would become a very large expression that has to be changed everytime the expression for one of the former objects changes. I'd rather just sum up the former objects.

       

      Is that possible? I can't seem to find how to do that.

       

      Thank You!
