    Is there a way to get the total number of instances for my reporting?

    I’m trying to generate a Random winner for a contest using the Random function and I want to set the Maximum value to be the number of instances… I could just go look at the last Instance Number but I’ve come across this a few times during form building so I was wondering if there was a way that I could pull it dynamically instead.

    Thanks!

    If you are building a report you can use a Value reporting object. Set the value drop-down to “count” and set the field to a field that is filled out on every instance. That will give you a count of instances.

    I hadn’t even thought of that – That’s perfect, thank you!

    Hi, Dennis, is it possible for the Value reporting object to get a count of certain value appear in one of the fiels based on my specification? How should I do that? Thank you.

    I tried with formula (when a field = certain value) for the Value object, but maybe I did not do it correctly so it is not working and continues to show the total instances count.

    Sorry, I don’t understand the question. I can tell you however, that it is not possible to use the values in reporting objects in formulas or functions.
