Plant Tables

Recommended Posts

How does one create a Plant Table. I can get the plant report to form ok, but cannot get the quantitites to tabelate totals for individual species.

Hi Thom,

The basic concept here is to use a worksheet formula in a database row to report the sum of items fitting a particular criteria.

The easiest way to start is to use the Create Worksheet command found in the Organize menu. Set up a worksheet to display the fields you want from a plant record. Then add a column to the worksheet to accept the totals information where you want.

Sometimes you want to simply count all the symbols of a particular kind. In the database header cell in the new column enter the worksheet formula =1. Then drag the summation icon to the column gives the name of the symbol.

Other times, you want to display totals added from a particular field, like the price for example, so that you can display the extended price for a particular product. In the database header cell in the new column enter the worksheet formula ='name of record'.'name of field'. Note: you have to enclose the names in single quotes if the name is more than one word. Then drag the summation icon to the column that you want to sum.

These are 2 ways that you can use the feature to get totals in one of the columns.

More information can be found in Ch. 16 of the VectorWorks User Guide. Note: this information is found in Ch. 15 of version 8.
