Building a specialized line items database I was told by the client to make
improve ments, so I wove the previously built order taking and line items
databases into one. A seperate database Distribution.FP3 was left untouched.
Here's a lenghty description.
When changing from the first line items database to the new one the field
defenitions for the portals changed, as expected, but the Total
Sum(calculation) field behaved a little weird. The Total Sum field is as
follows (LineItems::Sum + Base pay - Deduction) but after changing to the
latter line items database it displayed the correct amount but only
_printed_ the Base pay part of the calculation. And here's the punchline.
The solution to this problem was to delete the Total Sum(calc) from all
layouts and put it on again! If anyone knows the logic behind this, please
