Filemaker Pro 14 - Summary Fields

Hi there,

I created a summary field but it somehow does not update itself automatically.

How can I have the Summary field update automatically without any humain intervention?

PS: Scripts are welcome indeed :)

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Summary fields need to be displayed in Grand Summary or Sub-Summary part on the layout. If they are in a sub-summary part the records need to be sorted by the sort order specified for the Part. Summary fields always summarize the current found set of records. If a Summary field is in a Sub-Summary part it will summarize the records above or below it (depending on what you've specified) with one iteration of the Summary field for each change in the value of the field that you sorted on.
