Calculation with report-on & report-block & report-body

Hi All,

Any ideas how I can run sum simple maths using the code below?

I need to subtract "report-info:data:Sum" from "report-info:data:startvalue"

Any ideas?


|| Starting Value || Difference || New Value |
{local-reporter:page:children|source=PAGETITLE0 Portfolio}
{text-filter:page:title|include=.*%data:Client > page:title%.*}
{report-body}{report-info:data:startvalue|format=£###,###.##} {report-body}
{report-on}  |  | {report-on:injected=true}
{local-reporter:page:children|source=PAGETITLE0 Portfolio}
{text-filter:page:title|include=.*%data:Client > page:title%.*}
{report-body}{report-info:data:Sum|format=£###,###.##} {report-body}
{report-on}  |

I'm a little confused about exactly what you're trying to output here, and why you're not using a {report-table} instead of {report-block}.

To do maths, you use the {report-eval} macro. Something like '{report-eval}%data:startvalue% - %data:Sum%{report-eval}' in your case. But I"m confused by the rest of the report, I'm afraid. I would expect you would just do something like this:

{local-reporter:page:children|source=PAGETITLE1 Portfolio}
  {text-filter:page:title|include=.*%data:Client > page:title%.*}
{report-column:title=Starting Value}{report-info:data:startvalue|format=$###,###.##}{report-column}
{report-column:title=New Value}{report-eval}%data:startvalue% - %data:Sum%{report-eval}{report-column}


For any calculations in Confluence, including any manipulations with table data, you may use CelesteCS Math for Confluence.

Assume you have a table with three columns and three rows on your page – from A1 till C3, where row 1 is the header row. The sum calculation formula for rows 2 and 3 will be simple:


There is a plenty of other functions in the macro, so you may perform any calculations using formulas in EXCEL style.
