Create a Contact Report

I want to create a report that will show me how many contacts of a certain ID/Status that reside in each state...i/e a report that groups contacts by state and counts them for me.

Re: Create a Contact Report

That can be done but it would require some VB script programming to accumulate the numbers you want.

Re: Create a Contact Report

There are two easy ways to do this.1) export your contact list along with state, id status/ to excel using export to excel in the contact list, then try grouping in excel.

 

The second way would be crystal reports. This is a failry simple report there that most consultants can do pretty quickly.

Re: Create a Contact Report

The scripting to create the report in ACT! is very simple and I've done it several times.  Frankly Crystal reports would be overkill.

Re: Create a Contact Report

So what is the script?  Where do I put it in the report template?

Re: Create a Contact Report

The script would be specific to the database information. It would be one or more simple If - Then statements. As to placement, that would be specific to the report structure.
