Records and worksheets

Recommended Posts

I have made a symbol and attached a record. In this record I have made a field where you can give a length and a drop down menu that has 4 options.
Now I want to make a worksheet that gives me the sum of the length fields with the specific option selected in the drop down menu.
Can anyone help me?

when you want to show any kind of record field in a database row, this is the structure you should use:



In case the record or field name contains spaces, you need to add ".



In case of a parametric object, the default record has the same name has the object. In your case you need to use the name of your custom record.

Wait...does 2017 have drop-down menus in record formats???  I might have to retry it this week and see if it's stable for me now!  That was one of my biggest wishlist items, and I didn't even realize it.

I thought earlier versions as well. You can create a list of possible values that can appear in the drop down.

If there's a way to do that in record formats in 2016 and prior, I've never found it.  I can do it within Spotlight fields.
