Calculating A Field In Submission Form




In a submission form, I have a date field with  calendar popup. I want to add a field for period with the format YYYYMM and store it in the same table as the datasource for the submission form.


Does anyone have a snippet of code that can solve this? And in that case, where do I put it? (Header?, footer?, HTML Block?).


I know that this is a violation of the rules for normalization, but here's the reason why:

I want to search records by period in a report. I can use Date Rollup to group records by month or year, but I can't use it as a search criteria. Therefore, the only solution seems to be to store an extra field in the table. Since YYYYMM contains both month and year, this would be the preferred format.

Hi Parma2015,


You can insert new criteria in your Report DataPage to filter the field by two boundaries. For example for a Date field you can have two Criteria, FROM and TO so you can search for records that fall within a specific date range.


Hope it helps.
