produce table report

hi,

how would i use a dataassist table wizard to produce a resulting table that shows how much money they have made from the sale to a client?

i have a products table which i though of inputtin a column for price however each sales advisor is on a different percentage rate for certain products. how would i implement this into the database and be able to view each salesperson rate and add it to a product for them to then view how much they have made in a table format on certain salesof products?

many thanks

The Data Assist wizard cannot be use to create Reports. you would need to use the Dynamic Flash charts tool to create the type of reports you are talking about.

thanks jason, how would i add a product rate to a specified user?

so at registration the one salesuser might be on 2% and another 5%?

many thanks again

You need to create a column in the user table to hold this value. Set the default to 0, then as the administrator, you need to go into the database and change this rate to the desired value.

thanks jason, so how would i generate the code to automatically work out how much he gets.

so for example commission =£500
salesman is on 3% of this.

would it be easier for to allow admins to add products to and assign rate to use an ecart object or something?

many thanks for your help

to get 3% of 500, the math is:
500 - (0.03 * 500)


you can return the from the database in a recordset column and use that in the math:
<?php echo(500 - ($row_rsName['percentageColumn'] - 500)); ?>

thanks jason, if i wanted to create a page to allow admins to add products and assign the percentage of that product to a salesman can this be done using just tblproducts & tblusers with datassist?

many thanks

yes, tblproducts will need a foreign key relation to the tblusers table

thanks jason, so what would the commission to the user be in the user table?

so users table

userid
usercommission

products table

productid
productcommission

what data type would the percentage be in the users mysql table?

thanks again

the commission would be stored in the users table, not the products table:
so users table

userid - int , primary key
usercommission - double for example 0.03 for 3%

products table

productid
productUserID - Foreign key to users.userID
