Hi, I’m hoping there is a way to do this that’s just a bit above my creative thinking right now.
The setup is this: I have a table of projects, with a linked field to records of individual yarns I have used in the project.
I need to record the quantity I used of each of the yarns.
These quantities will then feed through into a formula in my yarn records which picks up the quantity used in projects and recalculates the remaining available quantity.
I’ve got this working for single-yarn projects, but I can’t see how to have multiple values associated with specific linked records.
So for example if Project 1 has links to Yarn A and Yarn B records, I want to say that I used 100g of Yarn A and 50g of Yarn B.
I then need to be able to lookup only the quantities used in projects of each specific yarn, in order to sum that and use the figure to calculate remaining quantity.
This is my current project table structure.
