Show grand total running total in GridView Footer

In many scenarios we need to display Running total as well as Grand total in GridView footer. In this post i will try to explain in an easy way that how we can display running total & Grand total in a GridView footer combindly. To explain this solution using an example here i use a sales order report. The report contains all sales order amount in a tabular way. I will use a GridView to display sales order amount and use GridView footer to display Running total & Grand total. Let we have a customer table with id and name column plus an orders table with OrderID,CustomerID,OrderDate & Amount. Now our goal is to show all customers order with amount as well as page wise running total & grand total. Note that running total is necessary when you enable paging in a GridView where as Grand total is always you can consider.

How to create a single entry page for site collections in MOSS 2007



I have  7 site collections containing a few hundred team collaboration sites. Some users are internal (intranet) but most are external (extranet). Extranet users are experiencing problems with losing links to their sites and forgetting which URLs to use. So I would like to create a single entry page that all users can enter after the logon process, which shows a list of sites they have permission to access, and other user-specific information. Perhaps relevant documents, tasks, recently modified documents etc.

I know this sounds like a 'My Site' but we want to use use a general welcome page instead. We use Windows authentication.
What is the best way of doing this and is it something that can be done in SharePoing Designer or does it need to be done in Visual Studio?

Many thanks in advance.

System.EntryPointNotFoundException: Entry point was not found. when unit testing html helpers


I'm trying to unit test a very simple html helper but keep getting the following exception:

System.EntryPointNotFoundException: Entry point was not found.

public static string AdditionalUsersDropDownList( this HtmlHelper helper, int additionalUsers )


Dictionary<int, string> items = new Dictionary<int, string>( );

items.Add( 0, "None" );

for ( int i = 1; i <= 30; i++ )


items.Add( i, i.ToString( ) );


SelectList list =  new SelectList( items, "Key", "Value", additionalUsers );

return helper.DropDownList( "AdditionalUsers", list );

Excel 2003 pivot table - parent showing grand total than the sum of its children

All, In Excel 2003, I have a product hierarchy, for simplistic sake lets say it goes A > B > C > model nbr.  I have filtered on model nbr 1.  I have the product hierarchy in my pivot table and unit cnt as the measure. Starting at level A in the hierarchy I am showing a total unit of 12000, if I drill down to B it still shows 12000, if I drill down to C it shows 100 and if I drill down to model nbr it shows me model nbr 1 with a unit cnt of 100. So my question is why are my parents not filtering the model nbr, it is taking the total for ALL records that have level A as their parent regardless of the model nbr? This does NOT happen in Excel 2007 or when I browse my cube in SSAS.

Grand Totals showing "Type MisMatch" error

Hi All, I have created a calculated measure using Exponential and Datediff function, and the formula is shown below. ( (EXP((DateDiff( "d", CDATE([Time].[Date].CurrentMember.PrevMember.MemberValue), CDATE([Time].[Date]. CurrentMember.MemberValue)))/365.0 * [Measures].[CD Dec Interest Rate]) -1) * ([Time].[Date]. CurrentMember.PrevMember.PrevMember,[Measures].[Cummulative_Premium])   ) In the above formula what i am trying to achieve is finding the difference between previous date and current no of days in days and dividing it by 365 and doing some multiplication after that, When i deployed above formula all my row values are getting displayed correctly but all my grand totals are displaying as "#VALUE" and when i checked the error, it displays as TYPE MisMatch. Could some one help me in finding the problem in above formula. Thanks in advance.

InfoPath Repeating Table - Force new row entry

Hi,Wondering if anyone has had a similar situation.. I have an InfoPath form with a repeating table. When the user completes a row and saves the doc, I want this to be non-editable, so any subsequent changes have to be added as new row. Seems simple enough, but maybe it's just been a long day.. :) Any suggestions?Thanks,Laura
