Checking subtotals in a TimeLog

I have an application for TimeLog for all the users on R5.0.6 on WinNT. I have the view, which by columns are Person--Year--Month--Date--Project--Time. Here, the Time column displays sub-totals and total for every individual person and for the respective Project. I want to fetch the subtotal on a computed field for that person for that date, and if it exceeds 24hrs, then he should not be allowed to create a TimeLog. How is it possible?

It appears that you want to sum a numeric field from multiple documents related to a single person for a single day.

You could do the following:

  • use selected document to get a key (like name, or use session.UserName)
  • get date you're interested in (from doc or Today() function)
  • perform a NotesView.FTSearch providing a query based on the above fields
  • Iterate through the result set, summing the numeric field
  • Evaluate the result of above function.
  • If result > 24 then provide message and exit.
