Hi all. Does anyone know how to calculate a value from a colum in a FlexGrid. i know i can use SQL sum function to do this when retrieving a recordset. I would like however to calculate them from a column.

You can use this SumCol function to sum columns. For example if you want to sum column 1 rows 2-5 you can do this:

x=SumCol(msflexgrid1,1,2,5)

Cheers!

THE CODE:

Function SumCol(GridName As Object, Column As Long, _
Optional StartRow As Variant, Optional EndRow As Variant) As Variant
Dim lStart As Long
Dim lEnd As Long
Dim iVal As Long
Dim lTotal As Variant
On Error Resume Next
lTotal = 0
With GridName
lStart = 0: If IsMissing(StartRow) = False Then lStart = CLng(StartRow)
lEnd = .Rows: If IsMissing(EndRow) = False Then lEnd = CLng(EndRow)
For iVal = lStart To lEnd
lTotal = lTotal + CCur(.TextMatrix(iVal, Column))
Next iVal
End With
SumCol = lTotal
End Function
0
