I am a new Domino developer. I have already developed a little program called, "Medical Expenses Monitoring." Every time employees are reimbursed, their medical expense will be recorded on this application (using form). I made a view to show all of the medical expenses that are already made.
How can I calculate total medical expenses, calculate the remains (the remain formula is budget -- total medical expenses) and show this result in view?
Totals can be shown in a view by selecting the column of numbers you want to total. On the second tab of the columns property box, set the totals parameter to the type of totals you want. If your view is categorized, totals will appear at each level of categorization.
To determine how much is left in the budget, create budget documents to appear in the view. Either the values of the budget document or the expense documents should be treated as a negative number.
