I have created a column that looks up from a list. It can return multiple checkbox values and one of the additionally included carry-over columns is numeric. Context: Assembly A and Assembly N are selected. Their values from the 2016 part count column are 170 and 30 respectively. The value placed in the primary column is "Assembly A; Assembly B". The additional carry over column has "170; 30".
I would like to add the numbers separated by the semi-colon into a single calculated 200 value. I'm hoping that I can do this with an inline function. I've tried replace and I just can't seem to get the syntax right. Has anyone done anything similar and had luck with the inline function? Essentially, it will store in a variable and populate a total part count column. I just need some additional imaginations on this. Thank you!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried your requirement on my site, and here are the steps:
Workflow Variables: ColResult (collection type), Result (Number type with default value 0), Sum (Number type with default value 0)
1) Use regular expression action to Split the data. Pattern is ; and Input is the SP column where your 170; 30 values were stored.
Store results in ColResult.
2) Foreach action to loop through the ColResult and store result in Result
3) Math operation to sum the values: ColResult and Sum; store the result in Sum variable
Once looping is completed, you will get the added value in the Sum variable.
Thanks for picking a correct answer, Chris Carpenter, it's very helpful for the community.
