How to configure a calculated field as a Search field in Data Page?


Go to solution Solved by Vitalikssssss,

Question

Hi,

I'm new to Caspio and would like to know if it's possible to configure a calculated field as a Search field in Data Page? It seems that it's not possible, but what's the workaround?

I tried to get the maximum value from another table based on simple field matching with the main table.

Tks

Regards,
Ryan

>> You may use Virtual fields for this Submission Form. Virtual fields can pass parameters to the report to filter the data.
Ok, I got it. I was able to pass the value from a Submission Form to my existing Data Page now.

>>Also, you would need to embed both Submission Form and Report on single web-page.
Can you show me how to do this?

Tks again.

Hi @ryancys,

You would need to use separate from the the search which will be based on Submission Form.

You may use Virtual fields for this Submission Form. Virtual fields can pass parameters to the report to filter the data.

Also, you would need to embed both Submission Form and Report on single web-page.

The concept described in this article: https://howto.caspio.com/tech-tips-and-articles/tech-parameters/add-a-search-interface-to-results-sets-page/

Calculated Value datatype is available on Submission Form and Single Record Update Form. 

Hope this helps.

By the way, now I'm able to link the Submission Form to the Data Page, but the fact that I cannot select the "Calculated Field" from the "Filtering Field", how can I pass the Submission Form's parameter to it?

It looks like you have selected a Search from instead of Predefined parameters as explained in the video tutorial.
You will find the detailed answer in the video tutorial I have sent you above.
