I am trying to add up the amount values and display that in the footer. The amount value is an SQLOUT output from Postgres and is of I11 format
-* amount E11 I11
I tried converting it into Packed Decimal using ITOPACK but ran across syntax errors. What I want to eventually do is calculate the sum and then display that in the report footer as follows
MAINFOOTER/A122 = 'TRANSACTIONS '| DATE | AMOUNT;
Where can I exactly carry out the calculation and display it? (in place of AMOUNT in the above line) I tried doing a SUM(amount) but it complains that it cannot understand the expressionThis message has been edited. Last edited by: touch,
WebFOCUS doesn't do implicit type casts, so you can't just concatenate alpha and numeric values like that. You'll first have to convert the numeric values to alphanumeric, for example using EDIT or FPRINT.
What are you trying to achieve by converting that integer into packed decimal?
