# Count subtotal bands in a VFP 9 report

Posted on 2011-09-26

Is there a way to get the number of subtotal bands in a Foxpro report?

In my specific instance, I need to find out how many distinct families a teacher as well as how many children she has, where there may be more than one child from each family being served by the same teacher...

For example:

Teacher A

Joe Smith
John Doe
Jill Doe

3 students
2 families

I'm trying to get my data prepared as follows; the question is - how can I get a count of the number of families served by the teacher.

CLOSE TABLES all
SET SAFETY OFF

SELECT * FROM cases,teacher WHERE cases.cidinte = teacher.cidinte AND status = "A" ORDER BY fullname INTO table SYS(2023)+"\inter_case"

SELECT 0
USE children ORDER cidchil
SELECT 0
USE family ORDER cidfami

SELECT inter_case

SET RELATION TO cidchil INTO children
SELECT children
SET RELATION TO cidfami INTO family

SELECT inter_case
INDEX on fullname + family.familyname + children.fname TO SYS(2023)+"\inter_case"
GO TOP
BROWSE FIELDS inter_case.fullname,family.familyname,children.fname,children.lname,inter_case.date_assig

You are not disclosing your data model, so the solution is just a brief estimation:

SELECT Teacher, COUNT(DISTINCT Family) AS Families, COUNT(*) AS Childrens
FROM YourTable
GROUP BY 1
INTO CURSOR cResult

Now you may index the result on Teacher and use it in the report.

The above "YourTable" must contain all childrens and their appropriate teachers.

Thanks for the tip, I'm trying the following and getting an error "Group by Clause is missing or invalid"

SELECT fullname,COUNT(distinct(familyname)),children.fname,children.lname,cases.status FROM intervent,family,children,cases WHERE intervent.cidinte = cases.cidinte ;
AND children.cidchil = cases.cidchil .and. family.cidfami = children.cidfami GROUP BY 1

GROUP BY must be defined for all non-aggregated columns, so:

``````SELECT fullname, COUNT(distinct(familyname)), ;
children.fname, children.lname, cases.status ;
FROM intervent, family, children, cases ;
WHERE intervent.cidinte = cases.cidinte ;
AND children.cidchil = cases.cidchil ;
AND family.cidfami = children.cidfami ;
GROUP BY 1, 3, 4, 5
``````
