Sum of Christmas gifts


#1

Hi, I’m new to Airtable and it’s been a great so far. I am using the Gift Idea Tracker template base to make a Christmas gift tracking list. I have 2 tables, one with the gifts purchased, including price and recipient and a second table with the recipients, and what they are getting for Christmas. I want to have a column in the recipients table that tracks the total amount spent on each person. I think I need to use a rollup, but I’m not sure how to go about that.

Thanks for your help!

I think you’re right. Use a Rollup with a SUM function: http://support.airtable.com/hc/en-us/articles/202576519-Guide-to-formula-lookup-count-and-rollup-fields#rollup
