Counting Entries

Post by kevinrailway » Sun Nov 17, 2019 8:51 am

Hello

I do hope people are still reading requests for help!

I would like to count how many entries there are, say for each publisher.

There is a lookup view for publisher which has 3 columns, labelled 'Publisher', 'sort by' and the ID number.

What I would like is a 4th column, which displays how many entries there are for the publisher, preferably permanently.


I know I've seen it before, but I can't figure it out.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Kevin

Hello Kevin,

I'm reading the request for help, too.
I tried but could find how to add a 4th column.
It's easy with the explorer : select a publisher line and click on "Books" in the explorer part, you'll have the total number of books of this publisher.
But in a column, I don't know how, and would be happy to know, too.

Hi Thanks for that, but unfortunately it doesn't really provide the info I'm after.

What I really want is to find stuff like an author count in my contents. To explain further I'm working through some magazines and creating a listing on the contents. Select Book (in this case magazine title) and select the content button. I've entered a lot of information here, with the various articles. So I would like to find out information on items like author and keywords.

Sadly it doesn't seem possible.

Kevin
