Hi Al,

One of the features of Info WorkPlace (IWP) is that it understands the
1:many relationships.  If you build a subset (a definition of the files and
links) that starts from the ITEMBL and link in the CODATAN as a 1:many
(multiple CO's per item), you will only get one On Hand Balance quantity.
The On Hand Balance can also be totaled without being repeated for each CO.
Other files, such as ITEMASA can be added as a 1:1 link (one item master per
item balance).

When you get tired of Query's limitations, that is when IWP can really
shine.  It has many powerful capabilities for data retrieval, report layout,
and calculations.  Contact your affiliate or Infor for more information.

Momentum is the developer of IWP, inTuator and JacanaForms.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Query/400: How do you remove duplicate recordinformation
on a Report?

Hi group:

I'm preparing an Inventory Query Report for Finish
Goods that shows in a very simplified way:

1. Item Number, from ITEMASA;

2. Quantity On Hand, from ITEMBL; and

3. Customer Order Number related to that Item Number,

If a given Finish Goods Item Number has more than one
Customer Order opened against it, there is a problem.

For example, if there's three (3) Customer Orders
related to one (1) Item Number, the Report prints
three records (one for each Customer Order), thereby
repeating the Quantity On Hand data.

Is there a Query trick I can use to show only a single
Quantity On Hand for each Item Number along with the
multiple Customer Order Numbers within the same

I hope my explanation above make sense.  :-)

I look forward to your comments.
