Hi Holly

Thank you very much. That's a great idea.

Hi Elizabeth -

Looks like Brent has you covered, but I'll chime in with what I have. On our 
items_out receipt, I have this in the header:

<hr>You have a total of <b><span sumout="sum2" ></span></b> items checked 
out:<ol>

Which prints as You have a total of # items checked out:

I also made a sum for our checkout receipts, since it's common for patrons 
(especially parents checking out a lot of picture books) to want to know how 
many books they have in the stack they checked out today:

<hr>Today, you checked out <b><span sumout="sum2" ></span></b> items:<ol>

Which prints as Today, you checked out # items:

I've done a lot with receipt templates - they're fun! Glad to hear others 
exploring what can be done.

Hi Brent

Thanks so much! That third option did the trick.

Hi Elizabeth,

There's a sum function that you can include in your receipt templates to add up 
the given macro/value for a total.

I don't believe there's a count function, or I haven't seen one for the receipt 
templates, at least.

You might be able to do something like one of these approaches:

For the "checkout" receipt template (line item bit is included within the <li> 
tags you have):

Line Item: <span style="display: none;" sum="sum1">%copy_number%</span>

Footer: <div><center>You currently have <span sumout="sum1" 
style="font-weight:bold;"></span> item(s) checked out 
from<br/>%LIBRARY%</center></div>

That would depend on each of the "copy_number" fields being "1", and that field 
isn't a required entry... so it's probably not the best option.

I'd probably do something like:

Line Item: <span style="display: none;" sum="sum1">1</span>

Footer: <div><center>You currently have <span sumout="sum1" 
style="font-weight:bold;"></span> item(s) checked out 
from<br/>%LIBRARY%</center></div>

So a barebones/complete example for line item/footer would be:

Line Item:

<li>
<span style="font-weight:bold">%title%</span><br/>
Author: %author%<br/>
Barcode: %barcode%<br/>
Due: %due_date%<br/>
Item Type: %circ_modifier%<br/><br/>
<span style="display: none;" sum="sum1">1</span>
</li>

Footer:

<div><center>You currently have <span sumout="sum1" 
style="font-weight:bold;"></span> item(s) checked out 
from<br/>%LIBRARY%</center></div>
I'm not sure if there's any harm in hardcoding a "1" value for each line item, 
but that seems to work. I'll let others chime in.

Good luck!

Hello Everyone,

We had a request from a library that wants to have a total number of checked 
out items auto-populated on the bottom of their checkout receipts for their 
Summer Reading Club program.  I've got the template printing the list numbers, 
but can't seem to get it to total the number of items.

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much,
