#### Custom Calculation Problem

```I have a 4 column table (Column A,B,C and D)as my source data. D contains
numbers. I do a pivot table report. I layout A,B and C (in this order with
subtotals off) as row fields and D as datafield as sum. I reenter D into the
data area and do a custom calculation by specifying Show data as:
"Difference From", with Base field = B and Base item = (previous).

The result i wanted would have a sum of all B items with common A's as well
as the difference between consecutive items.

The custom calculation behaves inconsistently: for some items, it shows the
difference for some it doesn't.

It works however when i turn on subtotals for field B, which i prefer not to
do because it makes it look messy. It also works when i remove field C,
which i dont want to do because i need to see field C.

Any solutions?

thanks. /Gio

```

Custom Entity Relationship CRM 3.0
I have created a new custom entity (A) for which I need to create two referential relationships to other custom entities (B) & (C). (A) is the primary entity in both cases. The relationship between (A) and (B) acts normally. The relationship between (A) and (C) doesn't. When I try to add a (C) record from (A), (A) displays two records in the (C) lookup. One "record" displays data from system fields (created on and status). The second "record" displys data from the primary field. I am not able to access (C) record from the associated view in (A), but I can a...

Finding Min In Calculated Pivot Table Formula
I didn't have much luck on another list, so I thought I'd try this one. Any thoughts on the below would be appreciated. I have a pivot table with a calculated field for which the equation is [Sum of Dollars / Count of Instances]. So in turn I'm rendering the average cost for a list of items in a group. The table is set up such that each column contains a week number and the rows contain a list of items within a grouping. For example, I might be listing average cost of apples, oranges, and peaches for each week under a grouping called fruit. The next grouping is bread, where I...

Formula calculating fulltime/parttime vs employees.
I have a spreadsheet listing employees jobs in one column. Another column lists if they are full time or part time. There are several employees with the same job but work different times. I need a formula to calculate how many people with that title work full time and how many people with the same job work part time. A pivot table will do a very nice job for you. They are very powerful once you get to know them.

Problems connecting after changing a username
I'm having an issue with a user account. On our Exchange server we have POP3 server running. I set up an user account and tested the settings for the POP3 account. Everything tested fine.

Tracking customer orders when receiving stock
With our current POS system we can place items on order for a particular customer (whether we are holding the stock or not) and when we generate purchase orders the system automatically pops up letting us know we have pending orders for customers. We can then generate a purchase order based on this information. When we receive the stock, we can print out a report for that order that lists what stock needs to be allocated to which customers. Is there a way with RMS that we can do this? Unfortunately it is a regular occurance that our stock levels can be incorrect, for instance we may have a 0 ...
