math formula

i just newly using glide and try to make ledger app. very basic app.
how to make all row auto calculate base on math formula. below my screen shoot.
debit-credit=bal. then last result in balance will do operation minus or plus in next row. that how it goes until end of row.

Hola @Izhar,

If I understand correctly, you want to add/subtract the result of both columns, right?

If so, the way I would do it is to use a rollup column for the debit and a rollup column for the credit. Then that’s what I’d have in the math column.

Hi Santiago,

Thank you for your opinion. I believe that what i want to do. to be more specific if user insert in debit or credit the result will be in balance. I used to do at spreadsheet using formula but it was manual. below is formula in spreadsheet.

I’ve tried to implement a math formula which adds the current value plus the previous total through a relation, but there seems to be a bug and the math column doesn’t add the previous value

yeah that was my problem too but it worked on spreadsheet.
i am still doing manual at spreadsheet for balance column so it
kind of half automation.

Hi Izhar,

I faced the same the problem before.
I just using google sheet to do math. Because Glide can read the google sheet. Hmmm

I’ve solved it with a little help of @gvalero
I’ve made a relation with the previous item and then I add the current value with the previous total. @gvalero solved the issue with the sum in the total colum multipliying the lookup column *1


if you can elaborate a little bit? meaning i have to create new spreadsheet and do lookup or vlookup?

No, you can do it inside Glide using a relation - lookup - math column.

There are no calcs in google sheet. All columns are in Glide.

  1. A relation (“rel anterior”) associates each item with previous item
  2. A lookup column (“sum ant”), inside Glide, gets the value of the previous total sum (“sum”) using that relation
  3. A math formula , inside Glide, adds current item value with lookup column value in “sum” column. You can see the detail of this formula in the third picture.

Add column math tu yang “Debit - Credit”
And Roll up of “Debit - Credit” with sum
But it showing the last balance.
