APEX sub-total question

I have an APEX report that shows receivables and sales amounts by year, quarter and month. I have the page break by the first 2 columns which are year and quarter so I can show Quarterly Subtotal and Yearly Subtotal.

I have this derived column "DSO" based on formula: (receivables/sales)* number of days for the time period (i.e. num of days is 30 for each month, 90 for quarter and 365 for year). I want to use the receivables and sales subtotal values to derive the quarterly and yearly DSO values but don't know how to reference those values.

Any suggestions?
Mike

    Hi Mike,

    I'm not sure if I understand you correctly, but you want to use the calculated values that APEX did for you by using the break somewhere else?

    I wouldn't propose to get these values as you can't call them easily. However the solution I would prefer is by doing the calculation in your query. How far do you know SQL? for ex. using analytics would probably help you a lot. If you don't have any knowledge you might give us your query, another good resource is the asktom website.

    Regards,
    Dimitri
