Hi All,

I have a report.
I want to counting string data, the counting plus 1 if there is data (not blank).
I want to do it at group footer.

How could I do it ?

Thank you.

It depends on what you mean by 'not blank'.

Using Insert Summary and a Count on the relevant field will ignore Null values, so you will get a true count of fields with non-null data.
However if your data could contain fields that just contain spaces or other non-printable characters then Count will not ignore those.

Hi  peter57r,

Since its type is string.  
What I mean blank is empty string ("").

Thank you.

Try this

Create a formula

If IsNull({YourField}) OR {YourField} = "" then
    0
Else
    1

You can then summarize that to get the count of non-null/blank fields

I would expect empty strings to be ignored in a Count summary.

Are you saying they are being included in your total?

Are you using the built-in summary functions (Insert>Summary) or have you created your own formula field?
